Millington and Sutherland Williams on The Proceeds of Crime provides a definitive guide to all aspects of the law concerning the recovery of the proceeds of crime in England and Wales.

It provides an easily navigable step-by-step approach that considers how the legislation is geared to ensuring that criminals do not benefit from their crimes financially, as well as detailed coverage of every stage of the confiscation process.

This new edition has been fully updated to include all important legislative changes over the last three years, and covers all significant case law, including discussion on R v Waya The new edition incorporates in-depth coverage of the relevant legislation, with analysis of:-

  • the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and reference to case law under both the Drug Trafficking Act 1994 and the Criminal Justice Act 1988, as well as the most recent amendments under the Crime and Courts Act 2013.
