International Fraud Group – Where We Do It

International Fraud Group – Where We Do It | INTERNATIONAL FRAUD GROUP LONDON | Scoop.it

Fraud and fraudsters have no respect for borders and jurisdictions. A network that is serious about defeating both can only do so if it is equally global. IFG lawyers in one jurisdiction will invariably need the help of IFG lawyers elsewhere. Each one is able to rely on the others’ expertise in their local jurisdiction.

 

For this reason we now have members in 14 countries, including those key offshore jurisdictions where fraudsters are particularly fond of hiding stolen assets. 14 firms united by the conviction that “What is yours is yours”, “ce qui est à toi est à toi”, “was dein ist, ist dein”, “cio che e tuo e tuo”, “lo que es tuyo, es tuyo”, “o que e seu, e seu”, “wat van jou is van jou”, “hva er ditt, er ditt”.
