The Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London has launched its first ever International Asset Tracing and Recovery Executive Education course.
The Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) has developed the course in collaboration with Mishcon de Reya and Blackstone Chambers. Mishcon de Reya is one of London’s leading commercial law firms which specialises in International Asset Tracing and Recovery. Blackstone Chambers, as one of London’s pre-eminent sets of commercial chambers, has a long held reputation for its international fraud and asset tracing practice.
The five day programme is aimed at a wide audience including practitioners, judges and economists and will help learners to build upon their existing expertise in the area of asset tracing and recovery. Delivered through lectures, seminars and workshops, the course structure reflects the entire process which legal professionals have to go through from the moment of discovery of a theft up to the execution of legal orders as part of the recovery process.
Professor Ian Walden, Head of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies said: “CCLS has a long history of contributing to the training of practitioners and industry professionals through innovative and in-depth content offerings. I am proud that we are continuing to support their professional development by working alongside some of the leading law firms in the country.”
Mishcon de Reya is one of London’s leading commercial law firms. Their Civil Fraud group is consistently ranked as a Tier 1 practice in the leading directories, with several partners highlighted as stand-out experts in international asset tracing and recovery. Gary Miller, who is part of the delivery team for the course, has been involved in this field for more than 40 years. In October 2020 he entered the Legal 500 Hall of Fame.
Members of Blackstone Chambers have particular specialist expertise in utilising the coercive powers of the courts for the securing of evidence and the preservation, tracing and recovery of assets. Blackstone and Mishcon de Reya have together been responsible for devising and obtaining cutting edge interim injunctive relief over the last 10 years and are still leading the way in developing the law to combat risks presented by the emergence of cybercrime and identity theft.
Queen Mary’s Centre for Commercial Law Studies was established in 1980 by Professor Roy Goode to create an environment where practising commercial lawyers and those from academic could meet and exchange ideas. Over the past 40 years CCLS has become a world leader in commercial law research and teaching.
