Fraud and Asset Recovery

Globally, fraud and economic crime are at an all-time high. Skrine’s Fraud and Asset Recovery practice encompasses all areas of law connected with fraud, sanctions, money laundering, and multi-jurisdictional asset recovery.
 
We actively protect the interests of international businesses, government-linked entities and funds, and sovereign governments by recovering hundreds of millions of ringgit Malaysia in assets misappropriated by employees, directors or other persons connected to the clients. This often involves cross-border disputes and asset tracing.
 
We also work closely with forensic accountants and intelligence companies in conducting investigations and evidence gathering. We are able to turn around urgent ancillary relief, including freezing injunctions, search and seizure orders, and disclosure orders in this time-critical practice.
 
Leading the team is Dato’ Lim Chee Wee, who brings with his experience as a former member of the Operations Review panel of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and a member of the 1MDB Task Force for investigations, prosecution and asset recovery.
