Represent you in Account Freezing order (AFO) claims:

Since the big freeze of 95 Barclays bank accounts on 28 Feb 2019 totaling £3.6million, more accounts held by Chinese have since been frozen under the AFO. We have been helping our clients since that day to recover their funds and in many cases obtained a total recovery.

We have managed many successful recoveries mainly for Chinese students. “It often represents a fundamental underestimation by UK enforcement agencies of Chinese legitimately accumulated wealth” said by Dr.Zhu.
