Our partners have significant experience assisting clients involved in Serious Fraud Office investigations and prosecutions as witnesses, suspects or defendants. We are involved in many ongoing Serious Fraud Office cases. We also advise clients considering whether to make a report to the Serious Fraud Office.
We have acted in large-scale Financial Conduct Authority investigations and prosecutions and one of our partners spent six months working within the Financial Conduct Authority’s Enforcement Market and Oversight Division.
Additionally, we have defended large and complex fraud cases including the prosecution by the Serious Fraud Office of five executives of a FTSE 100 company for fraudulent trading. After a lengthy eleven-month trial, a jury acquitted our clients after less than two days of deliberation.
