The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 has caused grave concern to all professional advisers. Family lawyers in particular are troubled by the onerous obligations that the Act imposes upon them and their clients. Yet the provisions, even after the landmark decision in P v P, are open to several interpretations. Furthermore, many argue that the duties created by the Act are incompatible with the concept of legal professional privilege and the Human Rights Act 1998.

The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002: Implications for Family Lawyers is the first publication to concentrate on the Act in the context of family law practice. The authors analyse the Act, recommend good practice and apply their suggestions to a range of common - and not so common - real life scenarios that all family lawyers will recognise.;It is essential that all family lawyers understand the working of the Act, the offences it establishes and best practice under it.
