Asset tracing, freezing & recovery

It is imperative that those who suspect they have been victims of fraud act quickly to seize evidence and trace and recover stolen money and property.

Frauds can take place over several months and, in some cases, many years. Perpetrators often go to extreme lengths to cover their tracks. An effective and rapid response is critical to protect you, your reputation and your business. Rapid action enhances the chance of successfully recovering lost assets.

The Khan Partnership has experience of helping clients trace, freeze and ultimately recover hundreds of millions of pounds in misappropriated funds. We work with a trusted network of specialist practitioners to offer solutions both in the UK and overseas, so that wherever assets are located in the world we can assist in their recovery. 

Our experts are familiar with all of the legal remedies available from UK and international courts including:

Worldwide freezing orders

We regularly obtain freezing orders from the civil courts. The orders are designed to locate stolen money and property and to prevent the dissipation of assets. When funds have been transferred through a number of bank accounts, or passed to third parties, our experts have been successful in obtaining disclosure orders against financial institutions and individuals to locate missing and hidden assets.

Search and seizure orders

Our team is experienced in obtaining court orders to search the premises of those suspected of wrongdoing to seize and preserve evidence relevant to suspected fraud. Our solicitors also act as court-appointed independent supervising solicitors to supervise search orders.

Freezing orders can have a devastating impact as access to funds may be denied. Our experts advise on obligations under such orders and help access funds to meet personal and business expenses.

We also defend those subject of a search order. Our lawyers attend premises immediately and ensure the order is legal and proportionate and that any material seized is within the scope of the order and, if necessary, seek injunctive steps to oppose such search and seizure orders.
