In Relfo v Varsani  EWCA Civ 360 Peter Shaw and Joseph Curl of 9 Stone Buildings, appeared for the successful party in this case which will now become the leading authority on tracing and will greatly assist in the recovery of laundered funds . It decided that where monies are improperly paid away they may be traced through various accounts to the end recipient even if each of the stages in the laundering cannot be identified. It is also likely to become a major authority on unjust enrichment deciding that an indirect recipient of funds will be liable to give restitution where there is a sufficient degree of connection between the payment away and the receipt.
