Even if the criminal investigation does not result in prosecution or conviction, there is still the threat of civil action brought by the alleged victims of the fraud.

Our expert fraud lawyers will be able to advise clients on their potential exposure to civil claims, and to help ensure that any tactical and strategic decision taken by the client in any criminal proceedings is made with an eye also on the question of civil liability.

We also know that businesses and individuals investigated for fraud, are often only in that position because they themselves have been placed in that position due to the frauds of others.  Our team of specialist fraud lawyers are able to advise on the possibility of bringing claims for damages against third parties whose fraudulent conduct has caused damage to our clients.

The firm’s expertise in fraud is recognised by both of the UK’s leading legal directories, the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners. The Legal 500 has characterised the firm as being “involved in the full-range of white-collar crime”.
