Freezing Orders Explained – an update from McCullough Robertson

Victims of white collar crime, whether large or small businesses, can all face a real dilemma when the crime is discovered – can we get our money back?

The answer may be to obtain an asset freezing order from the Courts.

Freezing orders substantially restrict a white collar criminal from dealing with their assets, up to a value specified by the Court.  For example, a freezing order could restrict an individual from dealing with $1 million of their assets.  This is regardless of whether that individual actually has total assets worth more, or less, than $1 million.
