London: International Asset Tracing and Recovery Course

Founder member UK law firm Mishcon de Reya LLP is working with Blackstone Chambers and The Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London to launch the University’s first ever International Asset Recovery Course.

The course is a five-day programme running in November 2021 that will help you build upon existing expertise in this area by focusing on the legal and practical aspects that are of critical importance to the practitioner.

It will be delivered by two of the leading professionals in the legal world, Gary Miller, a Partner at Mishcon de Reya and Chairman of the International Fraud Group and Tony Peto QC, Joint Head of Blackstone Chambers. Both Gary Miller and Tony Peto QC are recognised as leaders in their fields by both Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, and together bring to the course around 75 years of experience in tracing, freezing and seizing evidence and assets all over the world. Other speakers include Philippa Rees, Professional Support Lawyer in Dispute Resolution at Mishcon and Blackstone’s Leona Powell, a leading junior specialising in civil fraud and asset recovery.

In this video, the course leaders discuss the background and what will be covered.
