The Background | Kangs Account Freezing Order Solicitors

  • It was alleged that our client was involved in running unlicensed lotteries and that the funds in the bank accounts represented the proceed of crime.

The Successful Outcome | Kangs Cash Forfeiture Solicitors

Upon being instructed, the team at Kangs Solicitors immediately:

  • examined all available material and conducted an extensive forensic examination of the numerous banking transactions,
  • advised our client upon his position and upon the most suitable manner in which to proceed as well as advice regarding potential exposure to civil and criminal liability;
