If you find yourself involved in civil asset recovery proceedings, or if you are served with a Property Freezing Order, you require expert legal advice immediately from a firm specialising in this area.

Wilford Smith Solicitors’s team of Civil Recovery Solicitors have considerable technical experience in recovery proceedings in both the criminal and civil courts. This is of particular relevance as, while civil recovery proceedings are concerned with an individual’s assets, there will exist underlying allegations that these were acquired as a result of unlawful conduct. We are committed to providing clients with the most robust defence possible through our skill, knowledge and determination, ruthlessly developing a top-level strategy for you to ensure the best outcome in any case.

Civil recovery, created by the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) 2002, is a type of non-conviction based forfeiture in which the High Court may make a recovery order to enable assets obtained through unlawful conduct to be seized. This method is increasingly used as an alternative to prosecutions. The legal experts at Wilford Smith Solicitors can advise throughout civil recovery proceedings, from preparing for litigation to negotiating with investigating authorities such as the National Crime Agency (NCA).
