Second World War

Second World War

Between 1946 and 1970 there were various treaties between nations regarding the confiscation of assets prior to, during and post the hostilities of the Second World War. Then, in 1998 we had the agreement by the Swiss Banks to make reparations in respect of dormant accounts held on behalf of holocaust victims and others, and also The 1998 European Convention on Human Rights. These two events have enabled families and businesses to recover assets confiscated during that time but never returned to their ownership.

We have been instructed to identify the assets and the subsequent management of various claims. This includes preparing the history of the family/business in order to verify the legitimacy of the claim, submitting the claim to the appropriate Country and relevant department, attending tribunal and appeal hearings when necessary and finalising the claim.
