Any serious fraud investigation can be devastating for a person’s reputation or business – even if you are only under suspicion – the uncertainty can be debilitating. Our lawyers have extensive experience in representing clients under scrutiny.
VAT & Tax Fraud
Investigations involving VAT & Tax fraud can be long and complex, with convictions normally resulting in a prison sentence. If you are under investigation or have been charged, you should seek the advice of our expert legal team as early as possible.
The agencies tasked with investigating money laundering have wide-reaching powers. We are regularly asked to assist clients who are under investigation, and where this leads to a prosecution, we defend such clients in court proceedings.
Confiscation & Restraint of Assets
If you are being investigated for fraud, investigating bodies, in many cases, will take steps to freeze your assets, often with a view to confiscating them as way of taking the profits from any illegal activity they believe you have been involved in.
An investigation by the Office of Fair Trading can start in any number of ways – from a test purchase by an official to the seizure of your property possibly leading to your subsequent arrest.
Corruption & Bribery
What were seen as legitimate business practices will now fall foul of the new Bribery Act legislation. This new legislation will leave many businesses and individuals open to investigation for corruption and bribery.
Regulatory & Disciplinary
We act for members of professional bodies who have breached regulatory rules and whose membership, or fitness to practice, are in question. Such investigations can be reputation and career damaging.
