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.

"This team is relatively new to the market with Mark Jones really setting it up. It has been able to draw on its internal commercial clients but as a result of Mark attracted individual clients outside of this sphere. They have really stepped up in this area; Mark Jones is a real feather in their cap."
