This Guide is from TerraLex and draws together contributions from tracing experts across a number of territories.  It covers a number of countries, plus Hong Kong and a number of individual US states.  It is arranged in Q&A form, asking: Is any information about assets publicly available?; What steps can be taken to obtain information to identify asset holders (whether third party or wrongdoer/adverse party) or the assets?; Can steps be taken to protect/preserve assets on an interim basis?; What are the requirements for obtaining a freezing injunction (if available)?; What assets can be frozen and do they have to be within the jurisdiction?; What about a search order?; Can a freezing injunction or search order be obtained in support of proceedings outside of the jurisdiction?; and Can a freezing injunction obtained from a foreign court be enforced against assets in the jurisdiction?
