From allegations of financial crime and health and safety breaches through to trading standards prosecutions, we pride ourselves on successfully representing clients in a wide variety of business crime cases, specialising in the following areas:

When a fatal accident occurs at work, charges of corporate manslaughter can be brought, with investigations carried out by the police and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). You will need the best professionals working on your behalf to navigate this difficult and complex situation and our highly skilled team of solicitors at Draycott Browne can offer you the specialist advice, guidance and legal expertise that you need.

Allegations of corporate manslaughter can be stressful for both individuals and businesses, which is why we are here to support you from the initial investigations through to any resulting court proceedings.

Money laundering is, in essence, possessing, using, concealing or facilitating the acquisition of criminal property, such as money or goods. We fully understand the far reaching consequences for anyone facing allegations of this sort, which is why our experienced legal team can help and support you throughout the process offering professional guidance and advice.

At Draycott Browne, we specialise in the three key areas: Serious high value fraud, benefit fraud and tax evasion.
