Corporate fraud can be committed by, or against a company and finding yourself the victim of corporate fraud can be extremely concerning. Private prosecutions can ensure that cases of corporate fraud are handled earlier, increasing the chances of repeat offenders operating on a larger scale being caught and brought to justice. Any victim or interested party can pursue a private prosecution process with their own, personally chosen legal support and services.

We have years of experience in the criminal justice procedure.

Corporate fraud and private prosecutions
Corporate fraud is a broad-ranging and complex area of law, encompassing a wide variety of fraud offences that take place in the financial sector. Traditionally, investigations into allegations of corporate fraud are undertaken by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), working closely with the police and other enforcement agencies such as the National Crime Agency (NCA) and HM Revenue & Customs. However, today's climate of austerity has resulted in limited resources for public investigations, with the consequence being that more and more of these cases are pursued through private prosecutions.
Our experienced fraud investigation solicitors can provide legal support to those looking to prosecute for offences such as:
- Fraudulent trading
- Bankruptcy-related fraud
- Insurance fraud
- False accounting
- Asset stripping
- Long and short firm fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Intellectual property fraud
It is important that you speak if you are considering pursuing a private prosecution for corporate fraud. Doing so gives our lawyers the best possible opportunity to effectively conduct your case, while also enabling them to provide you with guidance and support to protect you and your position in the short- and long-term.
