Serious and Complex Fraud Cases

White Collar Crime

These cases are often referred to as 'commercial' or 'white-collar' crime. This covers the whole field of fraud, money laundering, insider-dealing and tax evasion.

We have substantial experience in the realm of criminal business fraud work and are highly regarded as being a 'strong law firm'.

Much of the work of the department involves representing individuals and corporations facing prosecution brought by a wide range of bodies including the Serious Fraud Office, Customs & Excise, Financial Compliance Authority (FSA) and Ministry of Defence.

Serious Fraud Solicitors

We operate a specialist serious fraud department. Our large team of business crime & serious fraud solicitors and caseworkers have vast experience of the criminal justice system. We believe we have the largest number of Higher Court Advocates in the country. We instruct only top City barristers and QCs, with a wealth of experience from such cases as Guinness, Blue Arrow and Wickes. Members of our team have also acted in cases such as Levitt and Guinness and the Grobbelaar football payments case. In addition we instruct accomplished experts such as forensic accountants and VAT and tax specialists.

We have experience in serious fraud related matters in both civil and criminal jurisdictions, Companies Act issues and directors' responsibilities under the Company Directors Disqualification Act in respect of investigations conducted by the Serious Fraud Office, Customs & Excise, Inland Revenue Special Compliance Office, the Police or other regulatory bodies for particular businesses and industries, such as the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Financial Compliance Authority (FCA).

We are used to dealing with highly complex cases including significant international elements. These matters often last years not months. These cases frequently involve enormous volumes of material. We have up to date information technology to handle such cases.

Our panel of leading experts are on hand to assist in providing the best defence.

We are one of the few firms in the country to have been appointed to The Specialist Fraud Panel of firms eligible to deal with serious fraud cases and very high cost criminal cases. This panel only admits those firms that can demonstrate significant experience in dealing with these cases. For details and a full list of members click Legal Aid Agency. Also recommended in The Legal 500. We are one of the largest defence firms in the country and offer a first class service.

Our experience is, we believe, unrivalled and we will fight your case. If you require a serious fraud or business crime solicitor then please contact your nearest office today.
