Fraud Barrister for Bankers

The consequences of being convicted of fraud can be grave, so it is vital that you give your case the best chance of success. I have considerable experience in serious fraud work. My expertise includes:

  • Bank Fraud
  • Internet Fraud

  • Tax & VAT Investigations & Prosecutions
  • Civil Fraud

I also routinely handle the accompanying confiscation and restraint proceedings relating to fraud cases.

Recent Fraud Experience

I joined a team of lawyers acting for an Inspector of Police who had been accused of significant fraud. Comprehensive preparation was vital to the outcome of the case and required expert input from a forensic accountant, which we were able to obtain to support our client’s case. We also prepared substantial and highly successful legal arguments, and the trial ran for several weeks. In the end, the prosecution offered no evidence on all counts.
