Following the bringing into force of the Fraud Act 2006, there have been significant rises in the number of corporate fraud prosecutions. Specialist prosecuting authorities such as the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) routinely rely on this legislation to achieve convictions across both the public and private sectors.
If you are accused of engaging in fraud against a major commercial institution, or against a public sector body, you need the best legal advice at the earliest stage. The specialist Fraud Solicitors at Wilford Smith are renowned for providing clients with the highest quality legal expertise, working tirelessly to develop top-level strategies for those who find themselves in such a position.
Fraud investigations of this type will focus on the employees of financial institutions and civil servants suspected of fraudulent practices, and in many cases will begin with internal disciplinary proceedings. From the earliest stages of any investigation, the Fraud Defence Lawyers at Wilford Smith can advise you regarding strategy and procedure. Our Criminal Defence Team will work tirelessly on your behalf to ensure that your position is protected, to make sure that any interviews take place in a fair and proper way, and that you are kept fully aware of the progress of the investigation.
