What is serious high value fraud?

Fraud is the act of deception for financial or personal gain. For high value cases, that personal gain must represent a substantial amount. This type of offence is typically at the expense of another individual, business or organisation.

Crimes considered serious high value fraud include the following:

  • Investment fraud - such as share scams and pyramid schemes
  • Corporate fraud - such as asset stripping and fraudulent trading
  • Bribery and corruption - such as political or corporate corruption

High value fraud is committed though one of three deception methods:

  • Providing false information
  • A failure to disclose information
  • An abuse of power

High value fraud cases are often high profile due to both the seriousness of the crime and the amount of money involved in the case. Our solicitors have first-hand experience of dealing with high profile cases of public interest and will work tirelessly to protect your rights during this time.

Who will investigate your case?

If you are under investigation or are currently facing charges of fraud, your case will be dealt with by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), an independent government agency that works closely with the police.

The SFO will look for any incriminating evidence that will support their case against you, and use any evidence found to prosecute you.

How we can help

Our solicitors will liaise with the SFO and the authorities on your behalf and help you understand what to say should you be asked for any information. We will also deal with any highly complex areas of the case, challenging any evidence made against you.

If your case goes to court, we will provide you with first class representation, so that you feel reassured, knowing you have the best possible legal team behind you.
