Managing partner of Mintz Group’s London office, Ian Casewell, specialises in providing investigative support in large-scale disputes and fraud matters. As co-head of the firm’s international asset tracing unit, Ian has helped creditors enforce judgments in hundreds of cases over the past twenty years. Working for individuals, companies and governments, his cases are invariably multi-layered, frequently cross border and often in offshore jurisdictions. Ian and his team have particular expertise in areas they have found crucial to asset tracing and recovery, including banking, offshore structures, shipping, real estate, private aircraft and internet forensics.
Ian has worked in corporate investigations for over fifteen years. He previously worked at Europol, where he ran international investigations into organised crime. In addition to his operational work, Ian was lead analyst for all computer-crime-related activities within the European Union relating to Europol. In this role he was responsible for the establishment of an E.U.-wide strategic intelligence group comprised of members of the E.U.’s computer crime units, producing the first strategic assessment on computer-related crime within the Union. It was published and disseminated to all member states.
At the U.K. Government’s Asset Recovery Agency and West Mercia Constabulary, Ian was engaged in crime pattern analysis and the support of criminal investigations.
Every year since 2016, Ian has been recognized as a leading practitioner in Who’s Who Legal Asset Recovery Experts. WWL sources considered him to be “number one,” describing him as “awesome” when handling asset tracing, investigations and enforcement proceedings. He has an “‘impressive’ investigations practice, which centres on providing support for large-scale disputes and fraud cases.”
