Fraud & Asset Tracing
Our team understands that in fraud & asset tracing litigation, speed, strategy and maintaining a proactive approach are all of paramount importance. Our expertise in this area and agility as a firm means that we can take urgent action to protect our client’s interests. Our team has significant experience of both bringing and defending claims in the Isle of Man High Court based upon fraud, freezing injunctions (in support of domestic and/or foreign proceedings) and applications for pre-action disclosure and/or disclosure of information via an application for Norwich Pharmacal relief.
DQ is a member of the International Fraud Group (previously known as the Fraud Network), which is a handpicked group of specialist fraud lawyers across the world focussed on securing injunctions, asset recovery and trust-busting remedies in key offshore jurisdictions. As such, where (as is often the case in litigation of this nature) there is a multi-jurisdictional element to a particular piece of litigation and the client requires advice or assistance in another jurisdiction, we are able to quickly call upon long-standing global connections in an array of other jurisdictions.
Some recent examples of our work in this area include:
- Obtaining various urgent without-notice freezing orders and applications for Norwich Pharmacal relief.
- Successfully obtaining an order for security for costs for a local fiduciary in an on-notice Norwich Pharmacal application in the context of a potential $60million dispute.
- Providing advice and assistance in respect of a proprietary injunction in respect of a private aircraft.
