Group Litigation Proposal for UTM investors

Our detailed proposal is available here as a PDF

A summary of what we propose:

• UTM implicated multiple jurisdictions and recovery will also require action in these

• A large part of UTM activities occurred in Bulgaria. Funds were channelled through the UAE and central Europe. St Vincent, the Seychelles and the UK were homes for corporate vehicles

• We propose:
  • commencing proceedings against the companies and individuals behind UTM; 
  • against any facilitators / contributors; 
  • securing funds and information from third parties and sourcing information and 
  • procuring action from the public authorities, among others

• Lawyers specialising in the relevant jurisdictions and with different legal specialties will be engaged

• NBLO’s lawyers will carry out legal work relating to Bulgaria and certain English speaking jurisdictions and project-manage lawyers and other professionals from all locales

• We have worked hard to prepare the ground, so that actions can be taken swiftly once a litigation fund is in place

• We invite investors who wish to be represented to each contribute:
  • GBP 1,500 to a representation fund; and
  • agree to a further 15% of the proceeds on success

• We request you to distribute this letter to others who you know are affected – cost sharing and a wider involvement will help

• The gross share of recovered funds each UTM investor who joins us will be entitled to is equal to their share in the total claims we represent
