Police fraud squads and economic crime units work in partnership with local, national and international bodies, including counter fraud bodies across the public and private sectors, to investigate cases involving complex or high-profile fraud. These police units focus on the activities of organised criminal gangs, on raising public awareness about the threats posed by major criminal activity, as well as returning the proceeds of crime to victims. Should you find yourself under investigation by the police in relation to alleged fraud or economic crime, the Criminal Defence Solicitors at Wilford Smith have the required skills, knowledge and determination to ruthlessly develop a top-level strategy on your behalf, ensuring the best outcome in any case.
The largest fraud squad in the UK operates as part of the City of London Police which, as part of the force's Economic Crime Department (ECD), has responsibility for policing the UK's financial hub. Officers will carry out investigations into offences such as banking fraud, investment fraud, insurance fraud, insider dealing, advance fee fraud and cyber crime amongst others. Alongside the Fraud Squad, the ECD is made up of the Money Laundering Investigation Unit, Financial Investigation Unit and Financial Intelligence Development Team amongst others. Whatever the basis of an investigation, our solicitors will provide you with a service that is exceptionally strategic and results driven, and can attract the highest calibre barristers to provide support if necessary.
