Acting in cases of national and international stature, our barristers have been instructed in some of the most significant fraud investigations in recent years.

We have a highly commended financial crime and fraud team whose members are experienced at all levels of corporate, financial and commercial crime.

Our barristers act both for the Crown, whether brought by the CPS, Serious Fraud Office, HM Revenue and Customs, DTI or DWP, or on behalf of the defence, acting for both corporate and individual clients.

Our expertise includes:

  • Boiler room fraud
  • Bribery and corporate corruption
  • Cartel activity and price fixing
  • Commercial fraud
  • Corporate and investment fraud
  • Direct and indirect tax fraud
  • Diversion fraud
  • FCA offences
  • Film investment schemes
  • Insider dealing
  • Money laundering
  • MTIC carousel/VAT fraud
  • Pension, insurance and mortgage fraud
  • Pharmaceutical and health industry fraud
  • Ponzi scheme fraud
  • Property fraud
  • Revenue fraud

We also have extensive experience in restraint, confiscation and civil recovery provisions, including associated appellate work.

Many members of the team have vast experience of criminal regulatory issues and are perfectly adept at dealing with cases where there are crossover aspects, particularly in regards to environmental crime, health and safety and trading standards.
