This chapter, which examines the process of following and tracing in cases of breach of trust in Great Britain, discusses following and tracing under common law, tracing procedure in equity, and the claims in personam. It also describes the method adopted by Lord Millett in the Foskett v McKeown that allows a claimant to substitute the traceable proceeds for the original asset as the subject matter of his claim, and explains two kinds of tracing. One is following the same asset from one person to another and the other is following an asset into a changed form in the same hands.
