The specialist Fraud Lawyers at this firm have decades of experience defending serious and complex Money Laundering cases involving millions and millions of pounds laundered throughout the world.
Onerous obligations have been imposed on businesses, professionals and individuals to report transactions which are either known to be, are suspected to be, or ought reasonably to have appeared to involve Money Laundering.
Our Money Laundering Solicitors frequently defend business people and professionals who can easily find themselves caught up as witnesses, or even as suspects in Money Laundering investigations; whether as a result of actions of their own, their clients or another party.
If you or your business are being investigated for Money Laundering it can have far-reaching consequences, not just on you personally, but on your family and friends as well. A prosecuting authority can bring charges against family and friends if they believe they should have known that income may have been coming from illegitimate activities.
Our Fraud Solicitors are commercially aware and extremely pro-active in their approach, believing that prevention is the best defence against investigation and litigation. This is why our Solicitors can help businesses, professionals and individuals review or focus on their compliance procedures to reduce the risk of breaches of the legislation. We can advise on preventative measures at the early stages of an investigation to dramatically reduce the chances of being prosecuted.
Allegations of Money Laundering can be investigated by many organisations including the specialist Economic Crime Units at New Scotland Yard, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Financial Services Authority (FSA), Trading Standards Departments, National Crime Agency (NCA) and Department of Work & Pensions (DWP).
We have a highly skilled team which includes Fraud Solicitors, dedicated investigators and leading Barristers or QCs. We have built fundamental relationships with nationally recognised forensic accountants, telephony and computer data analysts and many other experts needed to ensure that every avenue is explored to protect your personal and commercial interests.
We have acted in substantial high profile cases over the years including those where the alleged criminality spanned foreign jurisdictions involving Cyprus, Singapore, Hong Kong, USA, Belgium, South Africa, Switzerland, Afghanistan, France, Iran, Spain, Pakistan and many more countries.
Our Lawyers will work tirelessly to pursue every possible line of enquiry to secure evidence which can be used in your favour. Whether in the UK or abroad, the Money Laundering Solicitors in this firm are trained to present all information strategically with a view to persuading the jury in your favour.
We understand that being the subject of an investigation is a stressful time for our clients and choosing the right Lawyer is of paramount importance. We therefore offer free, no obligation consultations to discuss your case and provide preliminary advice. 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 our Fraud Lawyers to arrange your meeting, whether face to face, online or by telephone.
