Proceeds of Crime
With the introduction of the Proceeds of Crime Act and the establishment of specialist teams by the Police and HM Revenue and Customs, the government has made it clear that it intends to claw back the profits from crimes.
The Police and HM Revenue and Customs have widespread powers to seize and detain cash and property that may be related to or intended for criminal conduct.
Murria Solicitors have experience in dealing in all areas of forfeiture and confiscation including restraint, receivership, confiscation, cash seizure and forfeiture.
This area of law is primarily civil law and proceedings are often in the High Court. Many criminal solicitors are not familiar with the rules of law relating to civil proceedings however we at Murria Solicitors have lawyers experienced in both criminal law and civil law, who together are able to pool their knowledge and protect the interests of their clients.
With the backing of a well established and highly respected criminal practice, and being a member of the former Specialist Fraud Panel and the Very High Cost Cases panel, we are well placed to offer a first class service in this area.
We have experience acting on behalf of persons who have been convicted, those who have been acquitted and also persons who have never actually been charged with a criminal offence. We also have experience in representing innocent third parties such spouses, partners, friends and associates.
Having represented Defendants in many complex fraud cases, Murria Solicitors have developed particular experience in cases involving claims for confiscation, forfeiture and Civil Recovery Orders.
The Team is headed jointly by two Partners, Mr Galwinder Singh Kang (civil proceedings) and Mr Jagtar Singh Kulair (criminal proceedings).
