Civil Fraud

South Square attracts a significant number of instructions in cases of civil fraud and our members have substantial experience in fraud litigation, including in obtaining freezing orders, search orders, Norwich Pharmacal relief and other information-gathering and asset recovery relief, including that available under the Insolvency Act 1986. In particular, as a result of South Square’s world-class reputation in the insolvency market, our members are frequently called upon to take a leading role in the high-profile fraud litigation which often follows any major corporate collapse.

Members are currently involved in the Greensill, NMC Healthcare, and Abraaj litigation, and have acted previously acted in litigation arising from many of the most substantial frauds of recent times, including Madoff/Primeo, Al Gosabi/Saad Group, Stanford, and JSC BTA v Ablyazov.

Much of this work has an international dimension and our members act in fraud cases in multiple jurisdictions including the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Bermuda, Dubai, Hong Kong, Jersey, Guernsey and Gibraltar.
