What the team is known for

Operating out of Canada, Bennett Jones is a large multi-service firm with a full suite of integrated practice groups. Its fraud law group regularly undertakes comprehensive fraud investigations, witness and suspect examinations, and asset tracing mandates within Canada and across the world. The firm can stop asset misappropriation, trace and freeze assets, implement loss mitigation strategies and pursue comprehensive recovery plans on behalf of its clients.

Strengths

"Bennett Jones is very active in asset tracing and recovery, and in Canada it's the most noteworthy firm, bar none."

"The firm provides expert opinions on points of Canadian law as part of a large global asset recovery case, but is also strong on matters relating to offshore jurisdictions. Bennett Jones was able to point to and address the subtleties in our case to get us the right result in litigation. Delivering excellent results under tight deadlines during a pandemic was not easy to pull off."

Work highlights

Bennett Jones acts for the court-appointed joint liquidators of Stanford International Bank in its Ontario action against TD Bank, seeking to recover USD5 billion.
