Our programme will prepare you to:

  • Instinctively identify the key issues that arise at each stage of the asset tracing and recovery exercise.
  • Improve your leadership skills by enabling you to direct and lead your team more effectively.
  • Help you prioritise what is both urgent and important.
  • Give you the tools to reduce the time and costs spent in asset tracing and recovery exercises.

Delivery format:

  • Lectures, seminars, workshops.
  • English legal system centric but with reference to civil law countries.

The course will centre around an asset recovery case study which will form the focal point of the course and develop as the course progresses. You will be divided into investigative teams, working as independent task force groups for the whole duration of the programme. Group discussions will focus on key topical areas, identify problems that have occurred in actual cases, arrive at potential solutions and compare different practices and approaches between the groups.

It will be delivered by a group of leading specialist fraud practitioners from Blackstone Chambers and Mishcon de Reya. The course is led by Mr Gary Miller, a Partner and Chairman of the International Fraud Group at Mishcon, supported by highly rated junior barristers Mr Luka Krsljanin and Mr Ajay Ratan, both of Blackstone Chambers, and Philippa Rees, a Professional Support Lawyer at Mishcon. Between them, the speakers bring to the course many years of experience in tracing, freezing and seizing evidence and assets all over the world.
