The Government in recent years has increased pressure on its agencies to tackle high level fraud and financial crime, and to rigorously investigate and enforce misconduct and wrongdoing at a corporate level.

This shift in attitude has seen an increasing number of companies fall under the spotlight for issues relating to non-compliance, and an increase in individuals facing prosecution for allegations of serious fraud, and a range of other criminal offences.

Our experienced team of solicitors, solicitor-advocates and barristers at Reeds understand the demands placed on a business or individual under investigation, and as such provide commercially focused, discreet and strategic advice and representation to directors, senior and chief executives, and business owners.  Their expertise enables them to act swiftly and proactively, and to pool their talent to help clients with a full range of issues including:-
