Cash and assets seizure and forfeiture proceedings

The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA) grants the UK authorities wide-ranging powers to seize your assets; in most cases cash or valuable items.

These can be held by the authorities for up to two years if there are grounds to suspect that they are connected to illegal activity. The authorities can then apply for you to be permanently deprived of those assets under forfeiture proceedings. Janes Solicitors have in-depth experience and expertise on all aspects of money laundering and proceeds of crime law and have a proven track record of success in applying for the release of funds subject to an asset seizure or forfeiture proceedings.If your assets have been seized, don’t delay. Contact our expert criminal defence solicitors at the earliest opportunity to see how we can help you.
