- Growth in civil fraud claims – No sector or industry has been unaffected by the global pandemic, and with it have come opportunities for fraud
Martin Shobbrook has spent his entire legal career focusing on matters related to civil fraud, representing claimants or defendants in substantial cases. His clients include private individuals, companies and trusts and state Governments. For claimants, his experience lies in multi-jurisdictional asset-tracing enquiries often involving Court applications in multiple overseas jurisdictions. His defense work frequently involves high-profile civil proceedings where the defendant is also under investigation by criminal, tax, and other regulatory authorities in the UK or overseas. Noting that fraud does not respect international borders, Martin has considerable experience (drawn from acting for both claimants and defendants) in working with lawyers in several jurisdictions at the same time and is particularly adept at devising and executing strategies across a wide number of jurisdictions at the same time.
