Allegations of fraud can arise in a wide range of circumstances; and the Government is placing increasing pressure on its agencies including the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) or Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), to take a robust approach in respect of those they believe are involved in fraudulent activity.
From a dawn raid at your home or place of work; investigations and any subsequent proceedings of this type are typically very lengthy and extremely complex. Defending a fraud allegation requires specialist representation and advice from as early a stage as possible.
Our expert fraud lawyers at Reeds are regularly instructed to defend clients facing allegations such as conspiracy to defraud, fraud by false representation, false accounting and money laundering; and to advise our clients on associated confiscation proceedings and restraint of assets.
With our own barristers who are recognised leaders in the field, an exceptional network of experts to call upon, and the ability to instruct specialist members of the independent bar and Queens Counsel when the need arises, you can be assured that you will always receive the specialist advice you need to defend an allegation of this type.
