Fraud is undoubtedly on the increase. But every fraud is different; the approach taken in each case must be highly tailored to ensure the best results. That’s why you need lawyers with a critical mass of experience in handling complex fraud cases using the latest techniques.
As the largest independent law firm in Hong Kong, Deacons regularly advises clients on some of the largest and most serious frauds in the region. We help them to trace and recover assets where possible, and advise on investigations and court proceedings in Hong Kong and China, as well as working as part of a larger team on multijurisdictional frauds involving global organisations.
Our experience has won our team glowing commendations in independently researched guides for its “professionalism and thoroughness” and for being “willing to go to great lengths in its clients’ interests” – something that comes as standard at Hong Kong’s own world-class law firm.
Early action is imperative and we can assist you with obtaining international freezing injunctions, preserving vital documents, securing disclosure and gagging orders, and tracing assets. We also help clients plan and implement internal investigations and liaise with external bodies, such as the SFC, ICAC, CCB and HKMA, forensic accountants and the media. In addition we regularly advise on associated criminal proceedings.
If you are concerned about an actual or potential fraud, or would just like more information on how we can help you, please feel free to get in touch.
