Some £200 million was recovered by the UK authorities in the year 2021 - 22 using recovery powers under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. The powers that are proving to be the most valuable to law enforcement are the account freezing and forfeiture powers in Part 5. They offer a fast cost-effective route to forfeiture.

This webinar presents a practical guide to account freezing and forfeiture and focuses on the key concepts and developments from the last 12 months.
