Mutual Legal Assistance is the formal process by which countries are able to request co-operation in the investigation and prosecution of crime. The international nature of many criminal investigations has seen a rise in these kinds of requests.
Requests for Mutual Legal Assistance often involve requests for evidence or witness statements. We have experience in advising clients of their obligations in relation to any request that is made to them or their company.
Countries can also use Mutual Legal Assistance to seek the enforcement of judgments, asset freezes and confiscation orders worldwide.
We have experience in acting for clients having such orders and requests against them. If you require advice, please contact us.
