Baker & Partners is an independent specialist litigation and dispute resolution practice. The firm is based in Jersey, British Isles, London and Cayman Islands  with affiliate offices in Washington and the British Virgin Islands.

Mr. Grey’s appointment has led, to an amalgamation between CIFA Consulting and Baker & Partners, that has enabled, both organizations to bring together, a focused multi-disciplinary approach to Asset Tracing, Investigations, Forensic Accounting & Auditing and Asset Recovery in the Caribbean.

The combined consultancy clientele now includes International Investigative firms, Law Enforcement Agencies, State Enterprises, Regulatory Bodies, Asset Recovery Agencies and Governments, across five (5) continents and the Caribbean Region.

Our combined services now target money laundering abuses and focus on asset recovery with an emphasis on the proceeds of grand political corruption. Our advisory has been crucial to the recovery of the proceeds of corruption in many countries.

Our team has decades of experience in auditing, forensic and special investigations, accounting investigations, as well as in recovering assets and securing compensation for victims of fraud, including sovereign states. Members of the team have been substantially responsible for the recovery of billions of USD of assets from a variety of white-collar crimes.
