Civil Fraud & Asset Recovery

At 2TG, we have a formidable reputation for handling complex civil fraud claims and cases involving high value asset recovery and injunctive relief. Our advocates appear in courts and arbitral tribunals in the UK and offshore.

We advise on claims involving bribery, deceit, breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duty, dishonest assistance, knowing receipt, conspiracy and conversion. Expertise also extends to money laundering issues on behalf of government agencies and financial institutions.

In relation to high value asset recovery claims, we are expert, in particular, at tracing claims with a multi-jurisdictional element. We are also used to working at short notice in obtaining, resisting or discharging urgent injunctive relief and other pre-emptive and interim relief, such as freezing injunctions, search orders and Norwich Pharmacal orders.

Many of our juniors have excellent experience before the Courts as sole counsel in this regard and they are instructed routinely to identify, freeze and recover funds fraudulently misappropriated, acting in many urgent without notice and freezing order applications (often worldwide) and linked Norwich Pharmacal disclosure applications.

At 2TG, we are able to draw on experience gained in other related areas of practice, such as in conflict of laws and private international law cases, where cross-border claims are in issue, as well as issues relating to insurance, particularly concerning fraudulent claims. Clients value the specialist expertise these synergies can bring to cases.

At 2TG the civil fraud work is combination of privately funded and insurer-backed cases. The latter benefits from the set’s excellent links with the insurance market and insurance law firms. It has been an increasingly important crossover in light of upward trends in fraud relating to cyber and fidelity.
