Fraud allegations can be damaging to you as an individual or to your business. It is essential that you receive expert legal advice immediately and suitable action is taken without delay.

We regularly represent individuals and businesses in multi-million-pound fraud allegations, tax evasion, money laundering and mortgage and property fraud.

Our lawyers have extensive experience of dealing with the various agencies that conduct fraud investigations, such as the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA) – (previously the Financial Services Authority (FSA)) and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) – and trading standards departments.

Anyone under investigation, even before they have been interviewed or taken to court, could have their bank account or assets frozen under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. This is likely to cause huge disruption to their day to day life or the running of their business. We have expertise in these types of cases to remove or vary such orders so that clients can continue with their lives or business whilst the investigation is ongoing.
