We have been involved in some of the largest international fraud cases, including Maxwell, Madoff, Michael Brown, Solo Industries and KazakhGold.

Against this background, our specialists provide clients with ready and extensive resources, up-to-date knowledge and a proven ability to advise on cross-border work. The team concentrates on civil and criminal fraud and related areas such as corruption, asset tracing and trusts disputes.
