(SFO) & Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) now routinely bring significant prosecutions using the Fraud Act in response to alleged frauds occurring in many different sectors. The Fraud Act 2006 replaced the existing offences contained in the Theft statutes and made it easier for these offences to be prosecuted.
We have experience of successfully representing clients accused of investment fraud, mortgage fraud, expenses claims, and other cases where people, and on occasion companies, have been accused of acting dishonestly.
Fraud allegations can be extremely damaging to those accused and have a profound impact on their life. Immediate and appropriate action has to be taken once an allegation is made. The right legal expertise is essential at the earliest possible stage; the investigation stage of complicated frauds can last for months and sometimes years.
We provide that expertise to protect your rights and your business, making make sure that our clients' are fully updated as to their case and exactly what to expect.
