Fraud Litigation, Enforcement & Contentious Insolvency

Asset Recovery Middle East

Developed by the industry for the industry. Impartial speaker faculty.

The Asset Recovery conference series is the leading conference series for fraud and insolvency practitioners. This Middle East and North Africa focused event brings together leading practitioners from the asset recovery, fraud and insolvency world.


Recognition – insolvency, arbitration and court orders

At the outset of any dispute, a key question is where the defendants assets are and how they will eventually be enforced against.  In cross border cases, the question of recognition is critical and often complicated.  This panel compares the mechanics of recognition for insolvency processes, arbitration awards and court orders, and in this context focuses on systems that have different types of courts.

Fraud in high value family disputes

Increasingly, family disputes for ultra high net worth individuals are cross border:  from disputes between heirs of estates that are litigated across multiple jurisdictions where the deceased testator held offshore trusts and onshore assets, to cross border asset recovery cases to enforce divorce settlements.  This panel considers the challenges involved in these cases, the role of funders and receivers, and how clients can best be positioned for settlement.

View from the Bench

In View from the Bench, hear judicial perspectives on the biggest questions of the day, their experiences with MENA focused cases, litigation, and arbitration, and take the opportunity to ask questions of titans of the bench.

Red flags for fraud, or cultural differences?

Conventional fraud prevention, anti-corruption and solvency thinking is often based on jurisdictions with long established business practices and developed regulatory regimes.  But in evolving economies, or indeed new markets such as crypto assets, conventional wisdom often has little application.  Our panellists discuss how to spot red flags in rapidly growing economies or sectors, and how to distinguish anomalies that are simply due to local business or industry practice, from those that are a sign of fraud or insolvency.

High value bankruptcies

This panel discusses high value personal bankruptcies – how do they differ from corporate insolvencies, legally and practically?  What are the challenges in dealing with individual bankrupts, and how can insolvency practitioners deal with these?

Networking, networking, networking

This is your best chance to network with leading regional experts from the MENA region whilst also connecting with colleagues new and old. Discuss practical challenges during the day and solidify new connections during the many networking opportunities across the 3 days.
