Business Crime

Fraud, Business Defence & White Collar Crime

Our team consists of specialist Solicitors, Higher Courts Advocates and Caseworkers with a wealth of experience in routinely defending complex financial crime. We work with and instruct only the very best barristers, KCs and leading experts. Defending complex white collar cases successfully is what we are known for.

Unlike most defence firms, our team holds specialist accreditation to deal with VHCC (very high costs cases) and has industry-leading specialism in defending highly complicated and multi-handed matters. VHCC accreditation gives us the ability to deal with serious and complex cases that can only be handled by solicitors and firms with the relevant experience.
