Private prosecutions and financial crime investigations
Financial crime covers a wide range of offences relating to money, the financial markets or the financial services industry. This type of crime is not restricted to large multinationals – instead, these types of cases often involve individuals and small firms operating throughout the corporate environment and any other persons or businesses that are subject to legal restrictions governing their financial affairs.
Our experts have handled cases involving prosecutions for:
- Bribery and corruption
- Money laundering
- Serious fraud
- Cartels and anti-competitive practices
- Insider dealing
- Corporate fraud investigations
- Tax & Revenue investigations
While financial crimes have historically been investigated and prosecuted by the police, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and other public bodies, private prosecutions are increasingly being used as a means of prosecuting those accused of such offences. Due to the complex nature of many types of financial crime, and the substantial resources required to bring cases to trial, state agencies are now less likely to pursue convictions due to limited resources. The financial crimes solicitors are experts when it comes to conducting private prosecutions – contact us immediately to arrange an appointment to discuss your case.
