Cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology on which they are built have exploded in recent years and dominate headlines. Whilst this has provided a huge number of exciting opportunities, crypto assets and the underlying technology have also been heavily exploited for fraudulent purposes.
Our crypto team at Fox Williams draws on expertise from multiple different disciplines, including civil and fraud litigation, regulatory, corporate and commercial, employment and our real estate team. Specifically, the fraud litigation team can help you with:
- Tracing crypto assets
- Misappropriation of crypto assets
- Secret profits
- Investigations by the FCA, NCA and other regulators and law enforcement agencies and litigation arising out of such investigations
- Anti-money laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance issues.
We work closely with third party providers (such as IT forensic experts and investigators) in tracing assets and gathering evidence.
