Welcome to this episode. This time we're talking crypto fraud with Head of Dispute Resolution and civil fraud litigator, Dan Dodman. For the purposes of this transcription we've broken down the interview into specific sections discussed.
Hi Dan, thanks for joining us today and welcome to the podcast. I guess my first thing is if you just tell us a little bit about what you do in the area of civil fraud just briefly?
Yeah of course, so I’m a Partner in our litigation team and you know, as you say one of my sort of specialty areas is civil fraud. And that’s quite a broad remit, so we tend to help clients when they think or have been subject to an element of fraud. So that covers both elements of it: both identifying whether a fraud has happened, so the investigatory aspects of going into, you know, a business and looking at various pieces of evidence, and trying to establish exactly what’s happened which is obviously a pretty crucial part of the process. And then, once we have worked out what’s happened, effectively bringing proceedings to recover funds and that goes the whole way from starting the court proceedings against a party to tracing assets, to look at different jurisdictions if money’s been moved to different places and also you know, looking at the ways that money’s been moved, so crypto and various other different things, which I think is what we’re going to be talking about.
