Blackfords LLP

Serious fraud

Our lawyers are routinely instructed in the highest profile fraud investigations and criminal proceedings, both in the UK and internationally where there are cross border issues and multi-jurisdictions. We act for individuals or corporations and their officers.

Our unsurpassed experience includes dealing with matters such as:

  • Fraud arising from tax investigations or false accounting
  • Banking rate manipulation such as Libor and FX frauds
  • Insider dealing
  • Land bank frauds
  • Rare Earth Metals frauds
  • Boiler room frauds
  • Ponzi or Pyramid frauds

These are all complex matters that we can immediately assist with. Our lawyers are used to dealing with last minute instructions to act for clients who have received a dawn raid or have been arrested. Where notice is given that an investigation has commenced, we can liaise with the investigation team to minimise the impact of their enquiries on your personal or professional lives. We can assist in agreeing a timetable that suits you for engagement with the investigation team.

We are used to dealing with investigations brought by the Serious Fraud Office, Financial Conduct Authority or the National Crime Agency.

Please speak with any of our key contacts for assistance with any of these issues.
