    Successful Outcome | POCA | Kangs National POCA Solicitors

    Kangs Solicitors have been acting on behalf of a client, who is the director of a company, in the defence of confiscation proceedings under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA) brought against him at Bournemouth Crown Court and which were initiated by Trading Standards.

    The Circumstances | Kangs Trading Standards Solicitors

    • The Prosecution served a very detailed assessment claiming that our client’s Benefit Figure, as defined by POCA, amounted to a sum in excess of one million pounds.
    • Kangs POCA team examined and analysed the material served by the Prosecution in considerable detail.
    • Detailed instructions were taken from our client and a substantive response to the allegations was prepared and served on the Prosecution.
    • Detailed negotiations were conducted with the Prosecution’s Financial Investigator.

    The Successful Outcome | Kangs POCA Defence Team

    • The Prosecution’s alleged benefit figure in excess of one million pounds was reduced to £525,358.25
    • Negotiations resulted in the amount actually payable by our client being agreed at £54,560.
    • As is to be expected, our client was delighted with the outcome.
