A shrewd and tactical legal approach is needed to prevent confiscation proceedings having a detrimental impact on an individual, their relatives and associates.
Confiscation proceedings have become an increasingly popular tool for enforcement agencies, both when investigating and after successfully prosecuting a case.
They can be unpleasant and can have a severe impact on your day-to-day life and the lives of those around you. This is why we are on hand.
We use our legal ability and out-of-the-box thinking to do everything possible to lessen the effect confiscation proceedings can have. And, where possible, we will seek to have them dropped entirely.
Confiscation proceedings are brought following a conviction so that the authorities can take what they believe to be the benefit gained from that crime. Anyone that is subject to such proceedings needs representation from lawyers with in-depth experience of what is a challenging and changing area of law.
We have a track record of successfully representing clients in such proceedings.
The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 has rightly been described as draconian because of the powers it gives to the authorities and the limitations it places on individuals.
But we have proved that the authorities are not infallible when it comes to confiscation proceedings and that an intelligent, robust approach can bring success, no matter how daunting the challenge may initially appear.
As experts in this area of law, Rahman Ravelli will work with you to ensure that confiscation is never a foregone conclusion.
