If you find yourself the subject of allegations of market abuse or market manipulation, the Financial Crime Solicitors at Wilford Smith can provide the best possible legal advice to make sure your interests are protected.
Our lawyers have an in-depth knowledge of the investigation and prosecution procedures used by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to target alleged market abuse and market manipulation. Wilford Smith's Criminal Defence Team will work tirelessly on your behalf to ensure that your position is protected, and to make sure that interviews and searches take place in a fair and proper way.
“Market abuse” and “market manipulation” are encompassing behaviours that seek to circumvent accepted practices in the financial sector, or to deliberately create a false or misleading impression regarding trading or working in the financial markets. The scope of the FCA’s powers are extensive, allowing it to compel anyone to produce evidence as part of its investigations, with powers to seek compulsory interviews, production of documentation, to search an individual’s home or business premises and to seize items including computers and electronic devices. If you find yourself subject to an investigation in relation to market abuse or market manipulation, Wilford Smith’s Financial Crime Solicitors will take a ruthless approach to ensure that you are robustly defended against any charges.
