The team at Baker & Partners has decades of experience in recovering assets or securing compensation for victims of fraud including sovereign states and in advising as to the most appropriate approach to any given set of facts. It also has almost unique experience of recovering assets held through offshore structures in extremely difficult cases, including kleptocracy cases and insolvent banks.
Members of the team have been substantially responsible for the recovery of billions of USD of assets stolen in a variety of crimes. They have over a quarter of a century of experience in how funds are laundered across borders using offshore jurisdictions, companies, trusts and other entities.
