Fraud and Financial Crime Investigation

Economic crime is on the increase throughout the world, and it is also an increasingly prominent area of our work.

In prosecution cases we can help to trace and locate key financial evidence, covering everything from simple employee theft of relatively small sums to multimillion pound high-profile offences of fraudulent trading, deception and tax evasion. We have also assisted in cases that involve living off the proceeds of crime (in particular living off the proceeds of drug crime) – we have even provided evidence in support of an alleged financial motive in an arson/manslaughter case.

For defendant crime work, we are highly experienced in preparing detailed fee proposals - whether for private payers or for legal aid - clearly identifying the need for our work and estimating the likely time and costs involved. Likewise, investigating authorities also require such cost justification to approve the necessary funding.

We can assist both prosecution and defence teams in their handling of a wide range of cases involving:

  • Theft (cash or physical goods)
  • Obtaining goods or cash by deception
  • Fraudulent trading 
  • False accounting and accounting ‘black holes’ 
  • Leasing fraud 
  • Proceeds of crime/confiscation actions 
  • Investment scams 
  • Advance fee fraud 
  • Stock market manipulation 
  • VAT ‘carousel’ fraud and other tax evasions 
  • Directors’ disqualifications 
  • IT forensic recovery and analysis of data/electronic evidence 
  • Identity theft
