ABOUT THE ASSET RECOVERY COMMITTEE
The Asset Recovery Committee, re-launched as an independent committee in 2023, provides an international platform for private and public-sector practitioners, civil society, international and regional organizations, policy makers, experts and funders to meet and discuss best practice and experience in the field of asset tracking and recovery, including asset recovery laws and orders, practical tools and techniques, know-how and case studies, from both criminal and civil law perspectives, across both civil and common law jurisdictions.
Asset Recovery is a multi-disciplinary practice area with asset recovery tools being relevant to asset recovery in cases concerning fraud, public and private corruption, insolvency, financial services, digital assets and cryptocurrency, sports, sanctions, shipping, private law matters, and war crimes. It is an important consideration both before and during the course of securing of judgments, orders and arbitral awards, at enforcement stages, and for the purposes of the financing of those processes.
The Asset Recovery Committee aims to create a model Asset Recovery Law in the near future to enhance the rights and tools available to plaintiffs and creditors, and is committed to providing a collaborative environment for key stakeholders to contribute to that process. In order to achieve that purpose, the Asset Recovery Committee will continue the significant efforts of its predecessor, the Asset Recovery Sub-Committee, in organizing regular conferences, seminars and workshops, distributing newsletters, and engaging to enable members to stay well informed of the latest developments in asset recovery practices globally.
