Expert corporate crime solicitors
Protecting you and your business against allegations of wrongdoing
Allegations of corporate wrongdoing can have a devastating effect on a company, its officers and employees. When such allegations do arise it is imperative that prompt action is taken and specialist advice is obtained. What is done at the outset can often determine the outcome.
Our regulatory and corporate crime solicitors have extensive experience of advising companies and senior company officers in both investigations and proceedings by a wide range of regulatory authorities and the police.
The cases undertaken by our criminal lawyers are often high profile, complex and international in nature. As a full service law firm we are able to call upon experts from other teams with specialist sector knowledge to offer our clients a complete service.
