Why choose our Fraud and Financial Crime lawyers?Our fraud and financial crime team has vast experience dealing with all the relevant prosecutors, meaning we provide clients a truly informed advice.
We act for companies and individuals who are subject to criminal investigations in the UK and have defended clients against enforcement agencies including the SFO, FCA, NCA, CPS, the police and trading standards.
Clients also benefit from our strong geographic reach which means we can ably advise on cross-jurisdictional issues. We frequently represent companies and individuals subject to cross-border investigations brought by overseas enforcement agencies.
We understand how to interact with authorities in a way that safeguards your position: managing disclosure of information and advising on "self-reporting", taking into account public interest issues, and the extent to which authorities will negotiate.
We advise witnesses in compelled interviews (for example under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice Act 1987), liaising with enforcement agencies and drafting witness statements.
