Expeditious and Efficient Asset Recovery is FraudNet’s Primary Mission
As soon as he or she accepts a case, the FraudNet lead lawyer assembles a strategic transnational team from within the network to meet the particular investigative and recovery challenges presented. Next, the client’s handpicked team promptly organizes a forensic investigation, and then selects the optimum jurisdiction to commence court proceedings, whenever and wherever necessary.
Each selected FraudNet team moves quickly and diligently using specialized disclosure, gag and seal, and investigative orders (e.g., 28 USC 1782 and Anton Piller/Banker’s Trust Orders). With their specialized arsenal of civil remedies and procedural tradecraft, FraudNet lawyers can force third-party financial institutions where assets are hidden to disclose client information, and do so secretly, without tipping off the targeted fraudsters. Other civil court orders grant FraudNet teams police-like powers to obtain documents and enter and search premises to retrieve critical information about the transfer and current location of fraudulently obtained assets. In jurisdictions where civil remedies do not exist, FraudNet teams work cooperatively with law enforcement authorities to freeze local assets and obtain evidence regarding the location of assets in other jurisdictions, for use in civil or criminal proceedings by other members of the team.
After an investigation is successfully concluded, the FraudNet team takes concerted action to freeze the target’s assets across the globe in multiple, simultaneous civil court actions. FraudNet lawyers also use injunctions or freeze orders to prevent fraudsters and their accomplices from selling assets before they can be liquidated to satisfy victims’ claims.
