We advise on fraud prevention, identification, investigation, asset tracing and recovery, as well as on the consequences of fraud from a civil, criminal and regulatory perspective.

Our cross-practice team, comprised of Commercial Dispute Resolution, Business Crime and Regulatory, Insolvency and Reputation Management experts, have advised on some of the biggest fraud cases in recent years.

We are committed to achieving the best outcome for our clients, providing fast, straightforward and cost-effective advice that gives our clients confidence that their problem is being managed by the right team.

No matter the size or scale of the issue, we quickly deploy multi-disciplinary teams tailored to our clients' individual needs and requirements. We have a well-established international network of trusted overseas lawyers, forensic accountants and local enforcement specialists who we work seamlessly with to get the best results for our clients.

We advise on the practical steps that can be taken before proceedings, as well as pre-emptive remedies – including freezing orders, search orders, and securing evidence through third party disclosure orders – to safeguard assets and recover those that have been stolen. After proceedings, and in the event that a debtor or bad actor refuses to pay, we have a strong track record in international judgment and award enforcement.

The team regularly represents individuals and corporates under investigation by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), National Crime Agency (NCA), Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), HMRC and the Police. Our cases commonly involve joint investigations with overseas authorities such as the US Department of Justice (DOJ), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the European Commission.

We also support businesses through complex, critical internal investigations, from selecting the right team and implementing a robust communications strategy, to self-reporting and taking appropriate remedial action. 

When it comes to fraud, prevention is better than cure which is why our team are experts in developing, implementing and advising on fraud prevention and compliance policies and procedures. We are often instructed by other law firms to advise on their systems and controls, demonstrating our expertise in this area, with our advice covering risk assessments, policy and procedure reviews, control remediation exercises, and staff training.
