Birmingham criminal solicitor
The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 means that cash can be searched for, seized and detained if the prosecuting authority has reasonable grounds to suspect it is intended to be used unlawfully or it’s as a result of criminal activity.
To retrieve the cash it must be proven that it was not secured illegally and is not going to be used illegally. We work with our clients to produce an audit trail to facilitate cash recovery and advise and represent them throughout the whole process. Legal aid funding may be available.
Ben Henry heads up the Forfeiture and Recovery Department.
