The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 provides draconian powers to restrain and confiscate assets of those suspected to be guilty of criminal wrongdoing or who have been convicted of certain criminal offences.
Tates has specialist solicitors who deal with Confiscation, Restraint and Cash Forfeiture. We are renowned for our expertise in providing legal advice and representation during confiscation proceedings in the Crown Court, or following the confiscation and seizure of assets by prosecuting authorities. We also offer expert advice in relation to Restraint Orders and cash forfeiture proceedings.
Our team has a wealth of experience in defending such matters, and we are often asked to advise individuals and third parties who are affected by Restraint Orders granted by a Crown Court before any charges are laid.
