Serious Fraud

Serious Fraud Offences

We have an excellent reputation for defending those charged with fraud offences. We are committed to quality and the results we achieve for our clients are second to none. As criminal lawyers, we deal in evidence, and believe there is no better evidence of the quality of our department than the results we achieve for our clients.

We place a great deal of emphasis on our proactive approach to representation at the investigation stage.  We will, where possible always look to bring an investigation to an early conclusion without a prosecution being brought.  We are acutely aware of the importance of reputation management. We will liaise with investigating authorities from the outset, we never lose sight of our primary objective which is preserving our client’s position in the event of charge and a trial.

Our team can respond swiftly to searches and dawn raids following the issue of a warrant or the use of a statutory power.

We also act for those whose assets have been restrained during the course of a criminal investigation. Restraint orders for instance can have a paralysing affect on both an individual or a company. Our experience in assisting those subject to both criminal investigation and restraint is substantial.

When seeking to restrain assets and individuals investigators often disregard the rights of individuals and their obligations.
