Crime, Business Crime and Investigations

Crime, Business Crime and Investigations

Investigations into your business can be time consuming and expensive both in terms of legal fees and business disruption. Reputational issues are also a key consideration when seeking to manage an investigation into your business.

We have experience in handling investigations and proceedings (civil recovery and criminal) brought by the CPS, OFT, HMRC and the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). We have arrangements with external cybercrime consultants and provide advice on money laundering, bribery and corruption.

With recent changes to the way in which criminal litigation is funded we are frequently asked to act for private individuals facing criminal allegations. Often these cases are enormously sensitive to the individual concerned and we pride ourselves on offering highly effective and discrete representation. This will frequently require engagement with the media and assistance from our specialist media lawyers.

Our focus is, wherever possible, to become involved in the early stages of an investigation in order to assist in the management of the process.  The aim in the first instance is always to avoid charges being brought but if that cannot be achieved we can provide representation in all Courts UK wide.
