Civil Fraud

Our members appear in a wide range of civil fraud matters, representing both claimants and defendants, with a particular focus on frauds perpetrated by ‘insiders’ (directors, employees, partners, and consultants). We are well versed in the whole armoury of personal & proprietary claims, and in securing interim injunctive relief.

Members have expertise in obtaining and resisting interim injunctions, particularly freezing injunctions and proprietary injunctions, as well as obtaining orders for the preservation of property and other evidence.

We are as familiar with the requirements of proving deceit at common law as with equitable relief for breach of fiduciary duty, including secret profits and bribes.

Members of chambers also have significant experience of contempt proceedings.
