Fraud and asset recovery disputes require decisive action at great speed. Identifying the perpetrators of a fraud and then pursuing and preserving information and assets, often across many jurisdictions, is a highly complex and sophisticated task.

- Conducting cases to obtain a final Judgment and an Order that the money is to be paid by the fraudsters or persistent debtors
- Enforcing the Judgment to recover the money
- Often banks have secured their lending against a property, in which case, we would obtain a possession order and then seize that property and sell it to recover the money
