This work deals authoritatively with the law and practice relating to the identification, tracing and recovery of assets. It focuses on the areas of uncertainty in the law which are of particular significance to practitioners. The work provides invaluable practical guidance to all those involved with tracing assets and their recovery. Given the importance of attacking serious criminal activity through taking the profit out of crime, the work is also of special interest to those concerned with such issues as confiscature of the proceeds of crime and money laundering.

  • Gives guidance on the investigatory and other procedures pertaining to the tracing of assets
  • Sets out the evidential and procedural issues relating to relevant legal procedures
  • Deals with matters pertaining to successful seizure and control of assets
