We have equipped our highly experienced financial investigators with the necessary skills and software to investigate matters concerning crypto assets. We see this as a critical area for any financial investigation and asset tracing case. We work with partners who can help manage frozen crypto assets and ensure they are realised for their best value.
Our client was defrauded of several million. Due to the multi-jurisdiction element of the crimes, securing the support of the relevant law enforcement agencies was not straightforward. Within hours we identified the digital footprint and trail to the communications, websites and advertising material used in the fraud. The crypto payments made were traced and the wallets identified. The location of the fraudsters was identified. On behalf of the client, we led engagement with relevant law enforcement authorities, financial institutions and crypto companies concerned and secured their support to hold the fraudsters to account and recover the assets.
