Confiscation Proceedings / Proceeds of Crime

"Mark Freedman draws acclaim for his work in high net worth divorce cases, including those involving company structures, family trusts and overseas assets."

Confiscation Proceedings / Proceeds of Crime

Osbornes has acted in a number of Matrimonial Cases and Financial claims where one of the parties has been involved in Confiscation Proceedings.

Family proceedings run in conjunction with confiscation/restraint proceedings and can often become complex and the evidence bulky in a very short period of time.

Where your assets have been restrained or confiscated by the Court due either to allegations regarding your own criminal conduct or due to the conduct of someone else then our family law solicitors can advise you as the strength of your claim to retain assets and can represent you in proceedings to protect your interest in those assets.

Being subject to an investigation is a distressing experience for individuals and their families. If you are convicted of certain criminal offences more than likely confiscation proceedings to seize your assets will follow. Family members can also be affected by confiscation orders and asset recovery proceedings. They may require their own legal representation.

Osbornes family law solicitors represented the Wife in the leading case of X v X (Crown Prosecution Service Intervening) 2005.

It is important if you find yourself in a position where assets are being confiscated or restrained that you obtain specialist legal advice as soon as possible so to maximise your chances of protecting your interest. This can help in preventing costs escalating and in gathering evidence.

How we can help you

Osbornes solicitors have significant experience of dealing with the Crown Prosecution Service, Revenue and Customs Prosecutions Office and the Serious Organised Crime Agency and have been involved in litigation regarding the division of assets after high profile investigations and arrests and are well placed to advice in this very specialist and complex area of law.

Your next step

If you or a member of your family is involved in confiscation proceedings or is under threat of such proceedings please contact a member of our family law team who will have a confidential chat with you regarding your situation. We will then be able to advise you on whether we can help you.
