I am a barrister at Francis Burt Chambers.
Proceeds of Crime and Criminal Property Confiscation
I have a particular interest and significant experience in proceeds of crime, criminal property confiscation, money laundering and anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing. My expertise in relation to asset protection is also readily applied to some taxation and family law matters.
A number of cases involving victims of cuckoo smurfing have been before the courts in Australia in recent times. I successfully argued the test case, Commissioner AFP v Ganesh Kalimuthu & Anor  WASC 108 in favour of the victim. I am briefed in a number of similar matters across Australia and I am willing to take instructions on further matters in all jurisdictions.
More information about my background can be found on my profile page.
I am based in Perth, Western Australia and am available to advise nationally in my areas of expertise. I am willing to consider electronic briefs and I accept direct briefs from in-house counsel.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss how I can help you and your clients.
