Specialists in Serious Fraud and Complex Criminal Defence
Serious Fraud Solicitors
MPR Solicitors are highly regarded in the defence of all aspects of fraud. Members of the firm have acted for both companies and individuals investigated by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), HM Revenue and Customs, Special Casework Unit at the Crown Prosecution Service and the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA).
Our recent cases include allegations of missing trader fraud (MTIC), insider trading, advance fee fraud, mortgage fraud, trademark & copyright infringements and VAT & Tax Fraud. MPR Solicitors has a growing reputation for successfully defending those accused of so called ‘white collar’ fraud. Our fraud solicitors work with our clients to provide the best possible advice and representation combining our expertise and dedication to individual needs.
The use of specialist government agencies in prosecuting fraud type cases means that defending individuals and companies accused of ‘white collar crime’ and serious fraud requires an experienced and dedicated team. We have put together a specialist team of fraud solicitors and caseworkers who have the support of expert teams of accountants, barristers, forensic experts and consultants to mount a proactive defence on behalf of our clients. We have also invested heavily in information technology which allows us to provide our clients with a case management system which assists in analysing and processing large amounts of data in a fast and efficient manner.
At MPR Solicitors our fraud team will analyse every case and seek to put forward a pro-active and positive defence at trial. We will advise our clients on every possible angle. These cases are often very complex and many high street criminal defence firms are simply not geared up with the resources or the specialist knowledge to defend effectively in Serious Fraud cases. MPR Solicitors are a member of the Legal Aid Agency’s Specialist Fraud Panel. This membership demonstrates our expertise and experience in fraud cases. In particularly complex serious fraud cases we can put together a team of 10-15 people in order to digest the case and prepare the defence case.
We have noticed an increasing trend in Fraud and Commercial Crime that now involves an international dimension and a multi-disciplinary approach. Over the years, our fraud solicitors have developed professional relationships with experienced forensic accountants and specialist Counsel to advise in the defence of such cases. We also have links with specialist law firms in foreign jurisdictions and have successfully defended fraud cases with an international dimension.
We can offer our experience and expertise in the following areas of Fraud and Commercial Crime:
Our expert Fraud solicitors focus on providing clients with individual partner attention throughout the legal process. Our goal in criminal and regulatory matters is to stop investigations before they reach formal charges and if charges are raised to have cases withdrawn or dismissed before trial.
