Fraud, Money Laundering and Financial Crime

Individuals within the firm have vast experience of handling allegations of fraud and financial crime including prosecutions brought by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Serious Fraud Office (SFO), and the specialist fraud section of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

Our lawyers have regularly dealt with allegations of insider dealing, money laundering, VAT (missing trader) fraud, boiler room frauds, land banking frauds, bribery and corruption and misconduct in public office.

We have the ability and experience to cope with the huge volume of material that these investigations produce and to ensure that the client is able to participate effectively in his or her own defence by giving instructions focussed on the main issues in the case.

Investigations into these offences are complex and can take a long time to come to fruition. Defendants can be on bail pending charge for many months and may be interviewed by the authorities on numerous occasions. The investigation will inevitably include detailed financial analysis of company and personal accounts.

It is important that anyone suspected of such an offence obtains expert legal advice from a lawyer with experience of such cases as soon as possible. We can assist and advise from the earliest stage in the case.
