Asset Recovery and Fraud

Our Asset Recovery and Fraud team has significant experience in advising domestic and international clients on enforcement, asset recovery, insolvency, financial and cyber-fraud and regulatory investigations. We have expertise in all forms of dispute resolution from smaller, local proceedings to high-value fast-track cases in Ireland’s dedicated Commercial Court and the largest, most complex, cross-border proceedings. We are skilled in bankruptcy, insolvency, international asset-tracing and multi-jurisdictional enforcement of judgments, and are committed to finding the most practical and commercial solutions for our clients.
