Business crime is defined as a crime committed in the normal course of business, for economic reasons, by or on behalf of business organisations. Generally, not crimes of violence, but economic motivation.
If you have been accused or implicated in any kind of fraudulent activity or business crime, it is essential to seek legal advice and representation immediately.
We fully understand the uncertainty, difficulty and stress that can be caused by facing an investigation or police questioning concerning any kind of business crime, and we can provide immediate and ongoing legal advice and support when you need it most.
We have diverse experience in dealing with criminal proceedings, including:
- Serious fraud
- The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA)
- False accounting
- Money laundering
- Insider dealing
Business and regulatory matters can take a long time to resolve, and you may find yourself accused of more than one, or overlapping offences. In some circumstances, there may be something of a grey area in between a possible civil wrongdoing that is distinct from a criminal offence; and conduct or activities that are illegal and could result in a criminal investigation, prosecution and ultimately conviction.
If you are charged with an offence, we will examine all of the facts and the evidence against you and work with you to build and present your defence to achieve the most favourable outcome.
