Expert criminal lawyers
Providing advice in response to allegations of white-collar crime
White-collar crime legal expertise
Our white-collar crime solicitors have extensive experience of defending clients in both criminal and regulatory investigations. Our work is often high profile, complex and has an international dimension. The right advice at the outset of an investigation is critical. We understand the impact an investigation can have on our clients and that is why we ensure we are there to support them at every step of the investigation.
We pride ourselves on our proactive and individual approach to each case. Our white-collar crime experts are able to quickly assimilate the facts and advise clients not only on the nature of the immediate investigation but also on long-term strategies to effectively deal with the issues faced. As a full service law firm we are able to call upon sector experts to assist clients as part of the specialist investigations team.
