Fraud, Value Recovery and Trusts
Enyo Law has a strong track-record of acting in cases involving high value and sophisticated fraud, asset recovery and trust litigation.
A large number of the cases Enyo Law advise on involve fraud of one form or another. We are highly experienced in investigating, initiating or defending claims involving fraud and recovering the proceeds of fraud in this jurisdiction and abroad.
We have extensive experience in dealing with all types of fraud claim including deceit, conspiracy, breach of fiduciary duty, dishonest assistance and restitution. In addition, our work frequently involves issues such as jurisdictional challenges, privilege against self-incrimination, sovereign immunity and judgment recognition.
At the outset, we collaborate with our clients and other professionals to put in place strategies involving innovative cross-border remedies to gather information and expose sophisticated acts of fraud where extensive measures have often been taken to conceal wrongdoing. Further, measures are frequently required to prevent dissipation of assets prior to the issue of proceedings.
Exposing fraud is often only part of the process and we are well-versed in seeking to enforce judgments and arbitral awards against assets located in a range of jurisdictions, often offshore. Strategies can involve trust-busting, piercing the corporate veil, obtaining charging orders, appointing receivers by way of equitable execution and seeking third party debt orders.
Such work involves close co-operation with foreign lawyers, forensic accountants, private investigators and IT specialists as well as liaising with criminal and regulatory authorities. We are able to co-ordinate and manage worldwide litigation strategies and have excellent relationships with law firms and other professionals across the globe.
Clients range across different jurisdictions and are public and private corporations from many business sectors as well as high net-worth individuals. In particular, we have experience of acting for funds against sovereign states in the enforcement of judgment debts.
