Inquires and More



The satisfactory resolution of commercial disputes, or the recovery of the proceeds of fraud and embezzlement, frequently depends on successfully tracing and recovering assets. The location and ownership of those assets are often obscured through complex corporate, nominee or trust structures, and disbursed across multiple jurisdictions.  

Our asset tracing team is experienced in working with corporate clients and legal professionals to locate, identify and freeze assets, often across multiple jurisdictions, leveraging the local expertise of associate teams across international locations. We are experts at tracing a transaction from its origin through to its destination. We can also help you to recover assets through civil remedies and act as court-appointed receivers to seize and manage recovered assets.

Pallas Consultants provides industry-leading intelligence. Clients regularly engage us to provide investigative support with legal disputes, asset recovery, and enforcement strategies in respect of sovereign states, commercial entities, and private individuals. Our analysts utilize leading investigative tools, allowing us to turn complex and varying data into clear, admissible, and actionable intelligence. We specialize in obtaining information from opaque or otherwise challenging jurisdictions through local knowledge and language capabilities as well as our network of on-the-ground sources, enabling our clients to gain insight well beyond the public record.

Asset tracing is an effective way of locating, identifying and freezing stolen assets. It is a tool that is used to trace the full series of transactions that take an asset from its origin through to its final destination. Acting strategically and as early as possible will maximize the chances of success in any case involving asset tracing and recovery.

Pallas Consultant's asset tracing work is entirely international in scope. We are a leading firm in executing cross-border investigations that require a multinational response, coordination, and resolution. We achieve results by bringing to bear the combined expertise of Pallas Consultant's global resources in business intelligence and investigations. Our engagement teams combine specialists in investigative research, forensic accounting, financial analysis, intelligence analysis, and insolvency and cyber security, allowing them to break through obfuscations.
