FRAUD & ASSET TRACING

 

While commercial scams and fraud are prevalent, early action to cure the wrongdoing is imperative. The key is to act quickly and efficiently in order to ensure the best chance of recovering assets which have been obtained fraudulently. 

 

Undoubtedly every fraud is different, our firm takes a dynamic approach in each case to obtain the best result. We take proactive steps to obtain urgent international or local freezing injunctions, preserving important documents, tracing assets and ordering disclosures. Internal investigations can be further assisted by us. Furthermore, we are able to liaise with the JFIU, SFC, ICAC and HKMA.
