Globalization has facilitated the transfer and movement of assets to many parts of the world, each with their own local laws and regulations. In this way, fraudsters are better positioned than ever to deploy complex financial vehicles to conceal the location and source of stolen assets. Many also have the resources to protect themselves against legal action.
For this reason, it’s important to work quickly and efficiently to:
- identify assets located across multiple jurisdictions
- obtain a favorable judgment
- enforce recovery claims
Our investigators and legal experts, working with outside forensic analysts, use a combination of legal, forensic and business intelligence expertise to help locate, identify and freeze stolen assets. Our goal is to trace transactions (with efficiency and discretion) from their origin to destination, and facilitate recovery through civil remedies and court-appointed receiverships.
We do this by employing an array of tools and resources to perform multi-jurisdictional asset searches, analyze finances and reconstruct records to locate the whereabouts of missing resources. Then we work on getting them back.
Our tracing team has experience in:
- Identification of assets
- Verification of asset ownership
- Mapping of related owners
- Mapping of assets by type
- Real estate and intangible assets
- Movable properties (cars, boats and planes)
- Corporate shares
- Other business assets and interests
Our internal teams and partners have investigated complex asset protection schemes in multiple cases involving cross-border litigation, as well as the piercing of offshore trusts and entities.
Please contact us to inquire about the feasibility of a preliminary investigation into the identification of assets and their ownership structure.
