The International Fraud Group began in London in 1997. Established by leading London law firm, Mishcon de Reya, it was a specific response to a client’s needs.

In the 15 years since, this one-off alliance has become a permanent global network, the criteria for membership the expertise and tenacity it takes to defeat fraudsters.
Today we are an elite group of handpicked lawyers across 14 countries that has recovered hundreds of millions of pounds.

Motivated – no matter the size and the scale of the fraud – by four tiny words: “What’s yours is yours”. We don’t rest until it is.
