BUSINESS, CORPORATE & SERIOUS FRAUD
Our in-house Corporate Crime 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, QCs and leading experts. Defending complex white collar cases successfully is what we are known for.
Unlike most defence firms, our team holds specialsit 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.

Trading Standards Prosecutions
Trading Standards investigations are stressful and can affect your personal and professional life. Our solicitors have years of experience in dealing with Trading Standards and can help you comply with their regulations to avoid an investigation.
At Bhatia Best we have extensive experience in representing companies and individuals facing Trading Standards investigations or who have been accused of trading standards offences.
If Trading Standards raise a concern with you about the way your business is operating then you should take independent legal advice, preferably prior to responding to any allegation.
Trading Standards will sometimes wish to interview individuals ‘under caution’, at the local authority offices or sometimes at a police station. We can attend such interviews with you. You cannot be compelled to answer questions. In many instances it will be possible to address concerns raised or negotiate formal or informal agreements/undertakings about future conduct.
If you or directors in your business are suspected of financial crime then you will need specialist advice from a team of experienced business crime lawyers. If you think that you may be subject to a financial/white collar, criminal or regulatory investigation or proesecution, contact us today on 0333 016 3333 or by using the form on this page.
