Martin Young: Pre-emptive Remedies
Martin Young will be looking at the use of pre-emptive remedies such as freezing orders and search orders as a prelude to claims for the recovery of assets. In particular, he will consider the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of remedies, and will provide practical guidance on seeking those remedies and maximizing the chances of successfully obtaining them.
Peter Shaw QC: Deceit and Dishonesty Defined in the Law
Dishonesty is a fundamental element of any fraud claim and the basis of any claim in deceit. However, defining dishonesty in a legal context has proved to be a surprisingly complex process, involving numerous subtly differing authorities. Peter Shaw QC will look at the various and in particular recent decisions on this key topic and will give a clear summary of what must be proved in order to bring a case based upon dishonesty.
Raj Arumugam: Asset Recovery and the Limits on Proprietary Relief
The availability of proprietary relief can make the difference between an uneconomic claim which is not worth pursuing and a viable claim with genuine prospects of recovery, particularly in situations involving insolvency. Raj Arumugam will assess the range of claims available to facilitate asset recovery and the circumstances in which proprietary relief is available, including considering when it is possible to trace assets into so-called evidential ‘black holes’.
