Confiscation & Asset Seizure

If you have been convicted of a criminal offence, the prosecution may ask the court for a confiscation order. If so, they may freeze your assets to make sure that the money could be confiscated and not hidden away.

Preservation of assets under the (POCA) Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 has become increasingly normal during investigations, frequently occurring during early stages.

What to do if Assets are Seized or Confiscated

A strong legal team is required to deal with this complex area as the court have the power to imprison, for up to 10 years in default, for failure to pay the amount due under a confiscation order.
