Confiscation Law Handbook, Second Edition provides practitioners with a practical, user-friendly guide to this complex area of law. The clear analysis of legislation and proliferating case law allows principles to be quickly identified and understood. A stage by stage explanation of the procedural requirements ensures that required forms and responses are completed well and within time limits.

Since the first edition, there have been a number of significant developments, most notably in case law at Supreme Court level which has had a profound impact on the calculation of benefit and the need to achieve proportionality and compliance with the Human Rights Act. There have also been cases, again at Supreme Court level, on apportionment and double recovery.

Cases covered in the second edition include:

  • Supreme Court case of R v Waya (2012) which has a profound impact on the calculation of benefit and the need to achieve proportionality and compliance with the Human Rights Act 1988 and Article 1 of the First Protocol of the European Convention.
  • Supreme Court case of R v Ahmad and Field (2014), a crucial case on apportionment and double recovery.
  • Court of Appeal case of Shakeel Ahmed (2012) the CA largest ever confiscation order overturned.
