Description


Part 5 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 provides for civil recovery, whereby property deemed to constitute proceeds of crime can be confiscated in the absence of a criminal conviction. Although civil recovery got off to a slow start, its potential is now recognised by law enforcement and policymakers, and the non-conviction-based approach is increasingly adopted in other jurisdictions also. This webinar will examine developments in the law and practice of civil recovery.

Speaker: Barnaby Hone is the inaugural Visiting Professor of Practice at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS). Barnaby has a wealth of experience in international asset recovery, white collar crime, and financial regulation. He is recognised in these areas in the Legal500 and Chambers and Partners. His practice has encompassed work throughout Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, the Americas, and Asia, including providing advice to countries such as Kosovo and BVI on developing or improving their asset recovery legislation. He is a contributor to the leading practitioner guide on asset recovery: Millington and Sutherland Williams on the Proceeds of Crime Act (Oxford University Press, 5th ed, 2018). He also sits as a Fee Paid Tribunal Judge, presiding over Immigration and Asylum matters.

Chair: Dr Colin King (IALS)
