Biography

Lincoln Caylor advises clients on the full spectrum of issues arising from international economic crimes: from asset-tracing investigations and asset-recovery litigation, to enforcement actions in complex, global financial frauds and related internal investigations.

In 2019, Chambers and Partners Asset Tracing & Recovery – Global-wide research results placed him as 1 of 9 asset tracing specialists trusted by peers and the sole Canadian based litigator.

Due to his asset-tracing experience, Lincoln often collaborates with his counterparts around the world to develop and implement cross-border asset-recovery strategies and solutions. Market commentators for Who’s Who Legal: Litigation 2019 say he "’is a first-rate practitioner’ who is highly recommended for his leading work on white-collar crime litigation.”

Lincoln is currently acting as lead counsel in the Yukos related litigation in Ontario against Russia. He principals the asset-recovery efforts in Canada of US $5.5 billion linked to Stanford International Bank, Antigua, which collapsed in 2009, following the uncovering of the world's second-largest Ponzi scheme. He also partnered with H.M.B. Holdings Ltd., the longtime owner of the Half Moon Bay Hotel, to enforce judgment against Antigua and Barbuda. And, he counselled Hermitage Capital Management Limited in Canada during Canada’s investigation into money laundering of a US $230 million tax refund fraud uncovered by the late Russian anti-corruption lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.

His solid track record in global asset retrieval mandates was highlighted by clients in Chambers Canada 2020, noting him as a “…leading fraud recovery” litigator and in 2019 as “a go-to” litigator for “the most complex, interesting and transnational’ investigative inquiries.”

Lincoln’s professional impact is noted in the recently published WWL: Thought Leaders GIR 2019, identifying the very best in their ability to innovate, inspire, and go above and beyond to deliver for clients.

As an influencer away from chambers and courtrooms, he co-founded The International Academy of Financial Crime Litigators, a collaboration of experienced public-and private-litigation professionals working with the Basel Institute on Governance to expand worldwide access to solutions in economic crime cases. He serves as a governor and vice-chairman of Upper Canada College and is a past chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Barrow Foundation, which provides scholarships to boys attending Upper Canada College. He is a former member of the Board of Directors for The Macdonald Laurier Institute, a public policy think tank based in Ottawa. In 2012, Lincoln received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his service to Canada.
