Your search for the best Confiscation Proceedings Solicitors in London ends at CAS
The Proceeds of Crime Acts deal with the confiscation of criminal proceeds. Their legislative goal is to ensure with the help of Confiscation Proceedings Solicitors in London that convicted offenders do not profit from their crimes.The Act does so by sending a strong deterrent message.
The Act intends to deprive criminals of the proceeds of crime and punish convicted criminals to prevent future crimes, and diminish the money available to fund new criminal organisations. As a result, there are difficulties in applying POCA’s rigorous regime because the Crown court no longer has the discretion to shape the confiscation order to match the facts and the justice of the case.

What should you know about confiscation proceedings?
The Proceeds of Crime Act of 2002 (POCA) allows the prosecution to obtain a confiscation order once someone is convicted of a criminal offence. This is because they can be demonstrated to have benefited financially.
The Prosecution determines how much the individual has profited from their actions and what assets they have to repay that profit. Failure to comply with a confiscation order may result in the Court imposing a jail term in default of payment or an asset seizure (including those in the name of a third party).
Confiscation proceedings can be time-consuming, complicated, and costly to the individual’s business or family members.
