Noble solicitors have a dedicated Proceeds of Crime Act department based at their office in Stuart Street, Luton.
Due to Noble Solicitors expansion over recent years, the directors recognised that a dedicated and professional department was needed to deal with this most complex and challenging area of law.
Following conviction for financial crimes such as money laundering, defendants are very often subjected to the heavy weight legislation of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. It is agreed by all parties that the POCA legislation was made to be unfair and from the outset the defendants are seen to be substantially disadvantaged. The main reason for this being that the Crown have already proved the defendant as a criminal and they are simply allowed to make the worst case scenario allegations and assumptions regarding how much the defendant benefited from his crime, and what they say he has available to pay that back.
Noble Solicitors have a vast array of resources and expertise available to counter the prosecution’s allegations and ensure that under the circumstances the fairest outcome for a confiscation order is sought.
Our Proceeds of Crime Act department is headed by Steve Watson a proactive and dedicated POCA specialist who has many notable successes to his name.
Restraint Orders and confiscation proceedings can potentially have more impact than the Crown Court sentence. Noble Solicitors recognise the severe ramifications of an unjust confiscation order being made and carry out extensive enquiries, instruct drug experts, forensic experts, and accountants to provide evidence to support the defendant’s case.
Our professional approach not only includes thorough investigation to assist the defendant we adopt a realistic and pragmatic approach to securing the best possible outcome for our clients.
Our specialist Proceeds of Crime Act team will vigorously defend and justify your money to the Crown Court. We have extensive experience in defending individuals and businesses who have been faced with money laundering accusations.
