It is becoming increasingly common to have concurrent family financial proceedings running alongside restraint and confiscation proceedings in the Crown Court in relation to the same pot of money.

This live broadcast session is designed to provide a guide to family financial proceedings for confiscation and criminal practitioners and will explore the law and procedure surrounding the interplay between the two sets of proceedings.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive broadcast will cover the following:

  • Family financial proceedings - the law and procedure
  • Intervention of the CPS in the family proceedings
  • Interplay as between family financial proceedings and confiscation proceedings
  • Relevance and role of POCA 2002 Section 10A

Recording of live sessions: Soon after the Learn Live session has taken place you will be able to go back and access the recording - should you wish to revisit the material discussed.

Sarah Wood is Joint Head of the Business Crime Team at 5SAH and is ranked in both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 for her confiscation and asset recovery work. She is one of a handful of counsel at the Bar with experience of dealing with cases where there are contemporaneous proceedings in the criminal and family courts in relation to the same assets and is therefore able to advise clients and appear in all aspects of both sets of proceedings.
