We advise clients facing confiscation proceedings under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 - a complex area of law that requires specialist advice.
The Crown Prosecution Service and other prosecuting authorities can seek confiscation orders in relation to those convicted of various offences - for example, dishonesty, drug dealing and trafficking offences.
Once the Crown Prosecution Service makes an application to the court for such an order, the court must decide whether a defendant has benefited from criminal conduct. The court assumes that your assets are the proceeds of crime unless you can prove otherwise.
