Serious fraud may involve criminal or civil fraud claims, but these can often overlap and run in parallel. The civil aspect is called commercial fraud litigation. Much of this work emanates from contracts that have gone wrong between companies or alleged misconduct by senior people within companies.

The criminal aspect is called “white collar crime” because it may involve business people being prosecuted and company and corporate issues, and can range from allegations of insider trading, forgery, theft of intellectual property, money laundering, intra-community carousel fraud, other HMRC investigations, and a host of other transactions that may fall foul of the law and regulations.

Our team have enormous experience in complex civil and criminal fraud cases, including tracing of assets, injunctions, freezing orders and insolvency aspects. We are also experienced in the Proceeds of Crime Act and confiscation of assets cases.

We leave no stone unturned in our preparation, and help to take the burden from clients at an incredibly stressful time by providing first-class legal and genuine pastoral support too.
