ABV Solicitors can assist if you face confiscation proceedings brought either under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 or the Criminal Justice Act 1988.
Confiscation Proceedings are a complex and an evolving area of law. At ABV Solicitors we have the necessary expertise and frequently deal with representing clients who face confiscation proceedings ranging from substantial amounts to those involving multi millions of pounds.
We are able to advise you on issues including but not limited to:
- Benefit Figure;
- Recoverable Amount Figure;
- Tainted gifts;
- Hidden assets;
- Enforcement proceedings;
- Appointment of Enforcement Receivers;
- Default Sentences;
- Reconsideration of benefit and recoverable amount after a Confiscation Order is made;
- Certificate of Inadequacy;
- Discharge of a Confiscation Order;
- Appeal of a Confiscation Order.
If you are a named party or a third party affected by a Restraint Order, we can advise and assist with the preparation of responses, disclosure statements, variation and discharge.
With the increased powers given to the Police to seize cash found upon individuals, ABV Solicitors are regularly instructed to represent clients in relation to the detention of cash including any subsequent forfeiture proceedings, which may follow.
