At Emmanuel Chambers, we recognise that damages or penal remedies do not always make the client whole and that sometimes, recovery of lost assets alone will suffice. Accordingly, Afe Babalola & Co. actively pursues preservation, supervision and recovery of assets as our client’s needs require. Using Mareva, anton piller and or interim orders of injunction where applicable, we ensure that liquid and movable subject matter of litigation are not dissipated or concealed before the determination of suits. For assets already dissipated or concealed, we deploy our imaginative knowledge of procedural and substantive law as well as our connections to regulatory and law enforcement in recovering assets and identifying cloaked funds.
Also, being a frequent counsel and prosecutor for the Federal Government of Nigeria, we recognise that the public policy statement of prosecution remains inchoate unless and until proceeds of crime are recovered from convicted kleptocrats. Accordingly, we deploy our result-oriented approach to ensure that convictions are followed with forfeitures and recoveries. Deputy Managing Partner, Olu Daramola, SAN is a member of the Federal Government of Nigeria consortium of Senior Advocates saddled with the prosecution of high profile corruption cases.
