While Northern Ireland may not have bailiffs, there are a surprising number of ways that an individual’s assets can be confiscated and repossessed in retribution for their debts or offences. This presentation will examine a range of contentious scenarios within law enforcement and debt recovery involving the repossession and seizure of a client’s assets – with reference to assets being seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. Discussion will centre on the wide-ranging powers conferred on the authorities by key legislation and client’s rights and obligations.
The session will be delivered by Maria Glover, Napier & Sons Solicitors and Aidan Larkin, Wilsons Auction Group.
Maria is a Solicitor in Napier & Sons. She represents private clients before the Bankruptcy & Companies Master on a daily basis. With over a decade of experience in this specialised area of practice, Maria is widely recognised for her technical expertise.
