Complex fraud cases are unlike any other: The sheer volume of evidence demands a skilled methodical approach. The key is to analyse the evidence, identify key issues and present these in a way that is capable of being understood by a jury.
These are some of the specialist areas we deal with
- Corporate Fraud
- Unexplained Wealth Orders
- Tax evasion
- Missing Trader Intra-Community Fraud (MTIC)
- Fraudulent trading
- Securities fraud (insider trading)
- Insurance fraud
- Benefit fraud
- Money laundering
- Theft by employee
- Possession and use of counterfeit currency
- Corporate manslaughter
- Restraint Orders
We take a collaborative approach where your involvement is appreciated and encouraged, attacking the prosecution case and advancing yours.
You can expect a comprehensive case plan updated as the case progresses, so you will know the tasks being undertaken on your behalf and the timetable for completion.
There will be regular meetings to discuss progress and to review tactics and with offices in London, Sussex and Surrey, these meetings can be at a time and place convenient to you.
