Hosts

What this session will cover

The courts of England and Wales have the most powerful weapons and the greatest willingness internationally to assist victims of fraud, whether domestic or foreign. This session will explore how those powers can be used to assist not only victims of fraud but also domestic and foreign judgment and award creditors to locate, freeze and recover assets anywhere in the world.

In a mixed format session, leading practitioners will relay their experiences, summarise the very latest techniques available and provide vital insights to those who wish to maximise recoveries for themselves or their clients, explaining how the English courts can help even where there is limited connection to the UK.

The session is expected to cover:

  • Maximising recoveries: civil or criminal? Building the right team; using the English court’s powers as a foreign claimant; and the latest techniques available to locate, freeze and recover assets, no matter how well hidden
  • Key insights from real life experience focussing on judgment and award enforcement

Confirmed speakers include: Rick Brown (HFW), David Head QC (3VB), Edmund King QC (Essex Court Chambers), Neil Kitchener QC (One Essex Court), Howard Cooper (Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps), Sion Richards (Jones Day) (Chair), Barnaby Stueck (Jones Day) and Elspeth Talbot Rice QC (XXIV Old Buildings).

Registration and catering: Registration and networking will commence at 11:00 am, in time for a prompt 11:30 am start to the session. A light lunch will be available after the session.
