The Circumstances | Kangs Account Freezing Order Solicitors

  • Our client was served with an Application for an Account Freezing Order in respect of a bank account holding funds that were considered to be ‘suspicious’ and suspected to be either ‘Recoverable Property’ or ‘Intended for use by a Person in Unlawful Conduct’, being statutory definitions relevant to the appropriate authorities when identifying assets which they believe ought to be seized.
  • The suspicion was fuelled by the level of high value transactions conducted through a World Pay facility.            
  • Our client had previously initiated parallel civil proceedings in respect of these funds.

How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Asset Forfeiture Solicitors

  • We were instructed the day before the Hearing and, due to the possible adverse effect an Account Freezing Order would have on the existing civil proceedings, urgent detailed action was essential on the part of the team at Kangs Solicitors.
  • Immediate detailed instructions were taken from our client, his position was discussed at length and he was advised upon the appropriate course to adopt.
  • All relevant documents, including those affecting the existing civil proceedings, were examined.
  • Substantial representations were advanced at Court which resulted in the Application for the Freezing Order being withdrawn.
  • Naturally, our client was delighted with the successful result achieved in such a short period of time.
