What the team is known for

DLA Piper's fraud, asset tracing and recovery team comprehensively handles domestic and cross-border civil fraud disputes, predominantly in the financial services, energy and private wealth sectors. The firm is particularly active in asset tracing matters connected to emerging markets, where it can take advantage of its great geographical footprint and activity in over 40 countries.

Strengths

"Out of the many firms I've worked with, I consider DLA to be amongst the very best. Its comprehensive international network is a particular strength."

"What's evident is the quality of work DLA gets in their regional offices is no different to that which comes through London - that's unusual - the quality is there and kept high across the board. It all boils down to the quality of your solicitors, and DLA are as good as anyone across their offices."

Work highlights

Assisted a client who fell victim to an email fraud by obtaining an urgent ex parte Mareva injunction against a Hong Kong company and an ancillary disclosure order against the bank within a matter of days. DLA successfully recovered the frozen sums and returned them to the client.

Notable practitioners

Jamie Curle co-heads the firm's litigation and arbitration team in the UK, and is a key contact.
