We understand and have the skills to deal with cases involving ‘Nigerian Email Schemes’, ‘Phishing Emails’ and ‘Work at Home Schemes’.

Crucially, we have the expertise to handle large volumes of evidence and to ensure every piece of data is scrutinised to yield evidence which may strengthen your defence.

Whether your case involves the automated malware attacks, sending phishing emails, holding stolen data, selling stolen data or the use of stolen data; it is crucial that you seek very early advice in order to be prepared for the investigators’ questioning and prosecution tactics.

The prosecution must prove beyond any reasonable doubt that it was you sitting behind the computer involved in the commission of the crime. With the specialist Fraud Lawyers at this firm, you can seek assurance in the fact that we will do everything possible to ensure weaknesses and doubts are highlighted in the prosecution case and your chances of winning are at their best at all times.
