As one of the UK’s top-rated asset confiscation barristers and QC’s, Dean Armstrong is fully cognisant of the fact that those facing confiscation proceedings often face a most daunting dilemma. For this reason, Dean has developed his own tried and tested, and highly successful approach to getting the best possible outcome for his clients.
TOP-RATED ASSET CONFISCATION BARRISTER & QC
He clarifies exactly what the prosecution seek so as to ensure that the position cannot be moved at a later date. The preparation can then be focused and, in particular, can then concentrate on ensuring that what the crown seek to take is fair and reasonable.
There has been a series of recent decisions of the court which have stressed the importance of the prosecution only seeking to confiscate what is in proportion to the crime committed and no more.
Dean is also of the view that all too often the prosecution are allowed to rely upon assumptions to establish a basis for confiscation which are not fair or just in all of the circumstances.
Dean’s view is that there can often be a sense that due to the undoubted fact that confiscation is difficult to defend, some can be tempted to accept without challenge, legitimate matters which can affect the sum to be confiscated by hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Being such an experienced asset confiscation barrister, Dean challenges every penny which the crown alleges should be taken.
