Fraud has a broad definition which means that a lot of behaviour that in the past might not have been considered criminal now comes under the heading of fraud. This means that many human actions or behaviour can result in a fraud charge.
Our fraud solicitors in Brighton have vast experience in representing clients at the very highest level, who have been charged with theft, fraud or any other type of dishonest behaviour. We have worked on cases that involved complex vehicle registration issues and also multi-million-pound frauds regarding EU grant money and a huge range of offences. We even established new law at the House of Lords.
Our Fraud Solicitors
Fraud offences often carry a great deal of public interest, especially if the person arrested or charged is a high-profile individual with various business aspects. Our solicitors can give you advice on how to manage your public profile while under investigation.
We have experience in looking analytically at finances or using forensic accounting in order to disprove guilt or show to the CPS that their numbers just don’t add up.
If you are being investigated or prosecuted for a fraud offence, having a dishonesty conviction as part of a criminal record can have very serious implications later on in life, such as with your career. If you are a professional or work in finance, we know that the FCA and your regulatory body will take a very serious view on accusations of dishonesty. Our fraud solicitors can work with you to ensure that you protect your position.
Warning – police interviews: If you have been asked to attend a police interview, it is vital, in our opinion, that one of our fraud solicitors attends with you.
Do not enter into a recorded interview with a professional detective without a specialist solicitor. Make sure you have an experienced fraud solicitor by your side – even if you feel you have nothing to hide.
