Our Risk Management, Corporate Crime Investigations & Defence specialists assisted SeAH Changwon Integrated Special Steel Corporation, in asset recovery.

Client officially recognised as victim

The case involved cross-border criminal investigations into cybercrime, which involved fraudulent transfers of large sums of money and money laundering.

Due to effective cooperation with the investigative authorities and prosecutors, we obtained official recognition of the client as a victim in the Estonian criminal investigation, what is uncommon in investigations involving money laundering charges. In April 2020, the court decision was obtained and all the funds were successfully returned to the client.

Our services and project team

Our help involved representation of the client as a victim of crime before the Estonian judicial authorities, namely gathering evidence, cooperating with the investigation, and drafting procedural requests and submissions.

The client was advised by our team of risk management, corporate crime investigations and defence specialists led by counsel Norman Aas.
