Civil fraud

Fraud manifests itself in varied ways. When it is identified, a swift and carefully executed legal strategy is a necessary response.

Discovering the existence of fraud is challenging for any business. RPC's experienced team can help you meet that challenge by crafting a strategy to investigate the cause and scope of the wrongdoing, mitigate the damage, pursue the wrongdoers and trace the assets.

Our team has an extensive background in pursuing legal strategies, including freezing orders and search orders, to identify and recover misappropriated assets across multiple jurisdictions. We work closely with local lawyers in order to provide a coordinated response.

Acting for corporates and insolvency office holders, we have been instructed by the victims of fraud in a variety of industry sectors ranging from commodity trading to steel manufacturing, from warehousing to financial services. We regularly work alongside other specialists, such as investigators and reputation management firms, to ensure that the impact of the fraud is limited and the prospect of a financial recovery is maximised.

Where we need to work alongside lawyers in other jurisdictions, we are part of the TerraLex network and have access to over 150 law firms in 100 jurisdictions across the globe.
