Joanna Bailey attended the Fraud, Asset Tracing and Recovery Conference in Geneva

Joanna Bailey who heads Giambrone & Partners’ financial fraud and banking litigation department, attended the Fraud, Asset Tracing and Recovery conference in Geneva.  The conference is widely regarded as the premier event, worldwide, in the financial and banking sector.

She was pleased to reconnect with Racheal Muldoon of Maitland Chambers, whom she instructed in the groundbreaking case of D’Aloia v Persons Unknown & Others where court orders were served via a non-fungible token (NFT) through the blockchain upon the anonymous recipients of the assets. The case changed the face of asset recovery in fraud cases.  They were both delighted to learn that their case was the talk of the conference.

Joanna commented “the Fraud, Asset Tracing and Recovery conference was one of the most interesting and useful events I have ever attended” Joanna further remarked “it was networking with like-minded professionals and hearing the exchange of views was extremely beneficial”

Joanna was invited to the invitation-only Women in Fraud and Asset Recovery Luncheon where she shared experiences with other attendees.

Joanna Bailey, a senior associate, frequently leads the litigation against financial institutions involved in cryptocurrency trading disputes, as well as Forex investment issues and regulatory investigations and has some considerable success in retrieving our clients' funds lost in fraud.

Joanna has developed a range of strategies both to find the assets of the individuals perpetrating the fraudulent schemes and restore the funds to our clients. As well as recognising culpability in the organisations facilitating (but not associated with the fraud), by failing to undertake adequate due diligence.

She is highly experienced in high-value out-of-court settlement negotiations and has in-depth knowledge of the Civil Procedure Rules as well as English common law.
