Confiscation is one of the most difficult and challenging areas of criminal law. If you have been convicted of a criminal offence and the prosecution consider that you have obtained a benefit from the crime they can apply for a confiscation order.
A confiscation order will seek to deprive an individual of all of his assets up to the figure that is considered to be the benefit obtained from committing the criminal offence. This is a specialist area of the criminal law requiring specialist advice. We at Olliers have a wealth of experience in dealing with such cases. We have acted in CJA, DTA and POCA cases of all sizes and specialise in all asset recovery work, we have no fewer than seven specialists dealing with confiscation cases.
Our aim is always to reduce the confiscation order where possible by as much as possible wherever possible to ensure that this aspect of the criminal case runs as smoothly as it can for the individual in question.
