Cash Seizure

Our Fraud Lawyers have successfully recovered substantial sums of money for individuals and businesses affected by the draconian powers of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. Examples of such recoveries are listed in the Fraud Cases of our website.

Police and customs officers are regularly seizing cash (over £1,000) from ordinary law abiding citizens and then applying to the Court for its further detention and eventually its forfeiture. This legislation entitles the authorities to initiate this process based on the slightest of suspicions.

How we can help with Cash Seizure or Cash Detention

Our Fraud Solicitors understand that being subjected to a Cash Seizure and Cash Forfeiture action can be a distressing and traumatic experience for individuals, their families and businesses which may be effected by the seizure. As well as helping you understand the full implications of the law relating to Cash Seizure, our Fraud Solicitors will provide you with tireless legal support every step of the way.

We are particularly experienced in analysing financial records and protecting our clients' commercial interests during the detention of the cash, which can cause significant disruption to businesses.

Most recently, our Fraud Lawyers successfully recovered £58,000 for a mobile phone trader, whose cash was seized nearly two years ago. Despite the Proceeds of Crime Act demanding the deposit of such seized cash in an interest-bearing account within 48 hours of seizure, the Metropolitan Police officers involved in this case exhibited the money and detained it within a police property store, causing a loss of interest revenue for our client.
