Fraud Defence (Dispute Resolution)

Fraud Defence and Business Disputes

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

When you or your business are faced with allegations of fraud or breach of your corporate duties, your livelihood and reputation are immediately at stake. We will not compromise in your defence as there will be no compromise in the attack. An opponent has often had months to plan a first move and will use tools such as Search Orders and Asset Freezing Orders in an attempt to overwhelm you. An immediate response is critical but an ill-advised one can severely damage your case, as well as any other parallel criminal or regulatory investigation.

Our response is different, not just because of the speed with which we respond but because of the experience that we bring from having acted for both claimants and defendants. We understand the former’s likely points of attack, which means we know how to protect the latter better, and we relish these "pressure cooker" situations.

We also have a long history of working for clients who face the twin threats of a civil claim and criminal regulatory investigation, both in Britain and abroad.

Our success is complemented by the instant access that we have to the whole spectrum of related and supporting legal services within the Firm: Reputation Protection; Employment; Insolvency; Matrimonial; and Regulatory.
