Mortgage and Financial Fraud
The increased use of the internet and technology means fraud in the financial sector is increasing. We understand that where a business is the victim of a fraud the background issues can be complex. In many cases, timely detection is made difficult by the wrongdoer and the need to act quickly becomes even more important.
Our team regularly acts for financial institutions. We are acutely aware of the need to provide practical and pragmatic solutions in sensitive circumstances. We also regularly act in claims that include an undertone or hint of fraud or misfeasance where tactically a substantive claim in fraud could be counterproductive.
Our experience and successes reflects our involvement in high profile, complex and high value disputes in the financial sector.
We have extensive experience in handling issues which arise from financial and mortgage fraud, identity theft and cybercrime, whether involving solicitors, valuers, mortgage brokers, third parties or imposters. We specialise in seeking injunctions at short notice, including asset freezing orders, orders for the delivery up of assets and the recovery of funds, as well as search and seizure orders. This means that we are well placed to maximise the prospect of a successful outcome and to preserve the value of our client’s business and assets.
