 Civil justice initiative

The Fraud Advisory Panel’s civil justice initiative aims to encourage fraud victims (especially individuals and smaller businesses) to make more use of the civil courts in England and Wales when trying to get their money back, especially where a criminal investigation and prosecution is unlikely. The initiative forms part of the national counter fraud strategy, Fighting Fraud Together, which is a partnership between the UK’s public, private and voluntary sectors.

A series of five publications, edited by myself, examines the current justice landscape and the options available to victims of fraud seeking to obtain redress and recover money.
