Collas Crill partner Gareth Bell will be addressing the topic of fraud, asset tracing and freezing injunctions as part of the GTA's compliance series.
Taking place on Thursday 18 May, this session will look at laws in relation to a party’s ability to trace assets and possible methods available to recover their losses.
Detailed topics will include:
- Methods of obtaining information in relation to suspected wrongdoing and the location of assets
- Freezing injunctions, restraint orders and search orders
- Claims against wrongdoers and recipients of misappropriated assets for the recovery of losses
- Enforcement of judgements, arbitral awards and court orders
Gareth is a part of the dispute department at Collas Crill. He specialises in financial services litigation (including company/fund disputes, anti-money laundering, asset tracing and freezing and disclosure orders), trust disputes, insolvency, and professional negligence matters.
One of his recent cases includes acting for the non-executive directors of Carlyle Capital Corporation (a huge investment fund which collapsed in 2008) in a billion-dollar claim brought by the fund’s liquidators, the largest case ever heard in the Guernsey courts and currently awaiting judgment following a six month trial in 2016.
