CONFISCATION PROCEEDINGS

Where an individual has been convicted of an offence, the Prosecution are increasingly commencing confiscation proceedings. This is one of Rustem Guardian’s areas of specialism and we are considered by many to be the go-to firm for these matters.

As a result of our expertise and strength in this area, we are often able to take over confiscation proceedings even where you were represented by another firm during the trial process. 

Rustem Guardian are well versed in dealing with confiscation proceedings arising from complex substantive proceedings. Once confiscation proceedings are instigated, we have the expertise to identify the legal issues at an early stage and instruct specialist forensic accountants, drugs valuation experts and chartered surveyors where appropriate. 

Rustem Guardian have successfully challenged both the benefit figure and available amount asserted by the prosecution by conducting in depth analysis of the substantive offence, while gathering evidence on behalf of our clients who are often in custody and have difficulty obtaining documentation to assist with their defence. 

We also have the expertise to assist our clients once the confiscation order has been made – for example where an extension of ‘time to pay’ the confiscation order is required, or where the prosecution commence enforcement proceedings in the Magistrates Court.

Furthermore, we are very experienced in dealing with applications by the prosecution pursuant to Section 22 of POCA. This is where the prosecution seek to vary a confiscation order to increase the available amount and can take place many years after the order has been made.
