Bribery & Corruption
Stuart Miller Solicitors’ expert Fraud team is knowledgeable and experienced with handling Bribery and Corruption allegations. Our most recent instruction involved a multi-million pound public transport irregularity. We have collaborations with leading Barristers and QCs who will engage with us to prepare your defence from the outset. Whether the allegations you face are in the UK or with an international element, we have the expertise and strategic intelligence to give you the best chances of success.
In 2010, there was major development in UK law with the introduction of the Bribery Act 2010. The Crown Prosecution Service and the Ministry of Justice were quick to offer their support to the legislation and profess their vigour to pursue those involved in corruption globally.
Our expert Corruption Solicitors can assist you with challenging and minimising the impact of Restraint Orders that may be imposed on you, your family members and crucially your business. We have a culture of scrutinising and fighting the application of onerous bail conditions and challenging the admissibility of evidence often obtained using covert surveillance.
We are familiar with making applications for international assistance to assist your defence and our Lawyers are always prepared to travel to any destination to find, preserve and secure vital evidence to win your case.
We will consider the media's hunger to report such cases and to broadcast inaccurate and misleading information. Our Lawyers are trained in evaluating the impact of such reports and taking immediate action to limit the damage they cause. We will monitor the release of information and track the source in order to explore favourable applications such as the impossibility of a fair trial owing to likely prejudice caused by the media.
At Stuart Miller Solicitors we foster a culture of success. You will find our Lawyers to be talented, energetic and highly motivated to achieve the best result both for you and the reputation of the firm.
We have formed relationships with forensic experts of all fields who can be called upon to provide support for your defence. We have access to substantial resources in the UK and abroad to ensure that all witnesses are traced and all necessary evidence is preserved for your defence. We always endeavour to secure defence material at the beginning and avoid or halt a prosecution altogether.
Early action in any case is pivotal to increasing the chances of success. In such complex and intimidating investigations or prosecutions, you will require skilful advice at every juncture. We will offer you a free consultation for you to discuss your case with us. We can act for you at the police station for free and thereafter, we can help assess your financial eligibility for legal aid. We believe, no matter what your financial position, if you are prosecuted by the State, you must also be defended with funds by the State. Please contact the Serious Fraud team to arrange your meeting, whether face to face, online or by telephone.
