Well served by a global network of offices in all major jurisdictions, Hogan Lovells' asset tracing and recovery practice is an intrinsic component of its market-leading fraud department. The firm has taken a leading role in a number of recent landmark cases valued in the multiple billions. Hogan Lovells are especially respected for their expertise in tracing and recovering assets connected with Russia and the CIS region.


"They are the ones you least want to see if you are a defendant - they are the best litigators. Going up against them as a defendant in a recovery case is like being hit by a truck."

"I have huge regard for Hogan Lovells for their fraud and asset tracing work in Russia. They have some very good clients and are the number one firm in terms of asset recovery there."
