We are specialists in fraud cases and have been members of the Specialist Fraud Panel since its creation.
Our team’s expertise has been developed over many years in some of the highest profile and widest ranging investigations conducted by bodies such as the Serious Fraud Office, the Department of Trade and Industry, HM Revenue & Customs and the Financial Services Authority.
Our fraud solicitors represent individuals and companies accused of serious fraud or other serious professional impropriety. Our lawyers have played a significant role in defending individuals in some of the best known, unsuccessful prosecutions by the then HM Customs and Excise in both alcohol and computer chip markets. We acted for a main defendant in the first London City Bond appeal at the Court of Appeal and in the subsequent retrial and joined abuse of process hearing at Liverpool Crown Court. We also acted for a main defendant in Operation Vitric - a HM Customs & Excise investigation into a missing trader carousel fraud involving computer chips with an alleged loss to the Revenue of over £100,000,000.
legal aid and privately funded fraud defence solicitors
Our team of fraud solicitors have acted on behalf of a number of professionals both on a legal aid and a private basis in cases ranging from computer/internet-related criminal offences and boiler room and mortgage frauds. Recently our fraud lawyers successfully represented a defendant against allegations of fraud in the largest ever Ponzi scheme to take place in the UK.
As well as being experts in fraud and business crime, we are strong tactically and pragmatically. When you instruct us, you get lawyers who are quick to grasp the issues, who speak plain-English and who help put together your strongest possible case.
Where Legal Aid is not available we can quote you a competitive fixed price for our work.
