A Practical Guide to Cyber Fraud Litigation

This week sees the release of “A Practical Guide to Cyber Fraud Litigation” by Matthew McGhee.

Cyber fraud has grown exponentially as an issue affecting businesses and individuals worldwide, and has attracted increased attention during the current coronavirus situation. To tackle the challenges posed by cyber fraud, well-established principles of law can be adapted to prevent significant financial losses and reputational harm to the victims. The Court has shown willingness to develop its jurisdiction to give the victims of cyber fraud the tools needed to identify, trace, seize and recover the proceeds of frauds perpetrated against them. In addition to pursuing the immediate perpetrators of the cyber fraud, there are also numerous routes by which a victim can recover their loss from responsible third parties.

“A Practical Guide to Cyber Fraud Litigation” acts as an expert guide on the procedures and substantive law in this area.

Authored by Matthew McGhee, the guide draws on his expertise in fraud litigation, including the landmark case of CMOC v Persons Unknown and others, known as the first instance where a worldwide freezing injunction has been granted against ‘persons unknown’.
