- Growth in civil fraud claims – No sector or industry has been unaffected by the global pandemic, and with it have come opportunities for fraud
Claire Broadbelt, Co-Chair of the London Civil Fraud & Business Disputes Practice, represents clients on multi-jurisdictional civil fraud matters, both pursuing and defending complex claims. Her cases (which have included some of the highest value cases ever before the English High Court) often involve serious allegations of fraud or misconduct, including the diversion of business opportunities, claims of deceit, breach of confidence, breaches of fiduciary duty, conspiracy, bribery, and secret profits. She regularly handles matters which include worldwide asset-tracing and recovery, freezing and search orders, and other associated injunctions. She advises clients across a wide range of sectors including banking and finance, commodities trading, IT, retail, and property.
