Fraud & business crime solicitors

Our specialists in criminal defence have a broad range of experience in fraud, business and white collar crime. If you have been accused of fraud or are being investigated for a business-related crime, we can help.

Our highly experienced staff are well-equipped to deal with all kinds of fraud and business crime whatever the complexity of the alleged fraud or the value or scale of the prosecution.

Experience in fraud and business crime

Cases we have previously conducted include:

  • Large scale tax evasion
  • Money laundering arising from payroll schemes
  • Clients accused of defrauding their employers
  • ‘Boiler room’ fraud
  • Timeshare fraud
  • Ordering and returning goods on the internet fraud

Solicitors specialising in fraud

If you are being investigated for any type of fraud offence and want to know what you can do to defend yourself, contact our fraud lawyers. From providing advice about dealing with interviews to giving you the whole picture when it comes to potential penalties, punishments and consequences of fraud offences, we’ll be open and honest and most importantly, on your side.

Types of fraud investigations and cases our solicitors can help with include:

  • Serious fraud
  • Tax/revenue fraud
  • VAT fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Advance fee fraud
  • False accounting
  • Fraudulent trading
  • Diversion fraud
  • Cyber fraud
  • Benefit fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Financing your fraud or business crime case

In circumstances where legal aid is available and you qualify for it, we can apply for this on your behalf. However the financial situation of many people facing white collar charges means that they are required to finance the legal costs associated with their case privately. In these circumstances we may be able to provide you with an upfront fixed-fee quote for your case. Our first meeting with you will always be on a free, no-obligation basis.
