Our criminal team includes specialist confiscation lawyers who have a particular interest and expertise in this area of law. Our team has worked on ground-breaking confiscation and cash forfeiture proceedings, including complex and high-profile cases.
Without question, this is an unusually challenging area of the law, as the authorities do not have to prove that seized monies come from an illegitimate source. This reversal of the burden of proof requires professional, knowledgeable advice on the right strategy to adopt to have your monies returned and assets preserved.
We fully appreciate that having your savings taken away and your bank accounts frozen can be a most traumatic experience for any individual and the consequences for the future of your family and your business can be devastating. That’s why it’s especially important that our clients not only receive step-by-step guidance but can also be assured that we will work closely with them and act decisively on their behalf.
The Neumans team are able to advise you effectively in both criminal and civil confiscation proceedings. We regularly successfully defend confiscation and cash forfeiture proceedings and can also act for you in any appeal against a confiscation order. Our team has a proud record of achievement having secured very substantial reductions for many of our clients of up to 90 per cent of the original order in confiscation cases and the return of recoverable property in cash forfeiture matters.
