Fraud and Investigations
  • 1 Bribery and Corruption

    We act for corporates and individuals subject to investigations conducted by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and National Crime Agency (NCA), which often run in conjunction with agencies from other jurisdictions, such as the US Department of Justice (DOJ).

  • 2 Money Laundering

    Our team are regularly instructed to advise those subject to investigation for money laundering offences under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.

    We are also able to advise corporations on their obligations and procedures under the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regime. This includes an assessment of whether the current procedures are adequate and whether a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) should be filed.

  • 3 Proceeds of Crime

    We have extensive experience advising clients on the Proceeds of Crime Act and exposure to asset confiscation / recovery, often in tandem with Money Laundering investigations.

  • 4 Serious Fraud

    We advise individual and corporate clients on all aspects of fraudulent investigations and prosecutions, including Serious Fraud Office section 2 interviews.

    Our experienced lawyers offer strategic, discrete and professional advice to help you out of a difficult situation. We have extensive experience representing clients in investigations conducted by domestic and international agencies such as the Serious Fraud Office, National Crime Agency, Financial Conduct Authority, Crown Prosecution Service, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, City of London Economic Crime Unit, among others.

    We also assist companies who suspect fraud has been committed against them by an employee or third party by conducting Internal Investigations, gathering evidence and liaising with the relevant authorities.

    Fraud often has an international element and, with our experience and extensive contacts in extradition, we are able to effectively represent clients in cross-border investigations.

  • 5 FCA Investigations

    We work in conjunction with our regulatory team to offer tactical and effective advice on the following:

    • Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) investigations (supervision and enforcement)
    • Regulatory Decisions Committee proceedings (RDC)
    • Regulatory Transactions Committee proceedings (RTC)
    • Professional Regulatory Bodies Disciplinary Procedures
    • Information requests and requirements

    Our team is experienced in representing individuals and corporates in relation to criminal and regulatory investigations initiated by the FCA for market abuse, fraud and regulatory breaches. We also assist companies and individuals in obtaining FCA approval for regulated persons and activity.
