The Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London has joined forces once again with Mishcon de Reya and Blackstone Chambers for a second year with their popular executive education course in International Asset Tracing and Recovery.
Following the success of the executive course in collaboration with the two leading law firms in 2021, students can now book to join the course based at Queen Mary’s Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) starting in February 2023.
The course is developed in collaboration with Mishcon de Reya, one of London’s leading commercial law firms which specialises in International Asset Tracing and Recovery and Blackstone Chambers, one of London’s pre-eminent sets of commercial chambers, with a long held reputation for its international fraud and asset tracing practice.
The three day programme is aimed at a wide audience including practitioners, judges and economists, helping 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 go through from the moment of discovery of a fraud up to the execution of legal orders as part of the recovery process.
Professor Ioannis Kokkoris, Director of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies said: “We at CCLS are pleased to provide this excellent professional development alongside two excellent law firms. Following great feedback from participants on the course previously, we will look forward to welcoming more learners to join us at our home in Lincoln’s Inns Fields.”
Mishcon de Reya is one of London’s leading commercial law firms. Their Civil Fraud group is consistently highly ranked in both Chambers & Partners and Legal500, with several partners highlighted as stand-out experts in international asset tracing and recovery. Gary Miller, Partner at Mishcon de Reya, said, "We are thrilled that our International Asset Tracing and Recovery course is returning for a second year. This is no ordinary lecture course. It’s practical, interactive and based on a real life case study. The lawyers delivering this course are practising lawyers who are engaged at the cutting edge of asset recovery and fraud investigations. You simply won’t find this course anywhere else. “
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.
Luka Krsljanin, barrister at Blackstone Chambers, said: “We are delighted to be delivering this course for a second year, following its success. Legal professionals will have the opportunity to develop and sharpen their asset tracing and recovery expertise.”
