MPR Solicitors is a member of the Legal Services Commission’s Specialist Fraud Panel. This membership demonstrates our expertise and experience in fraud cases and members of the firm have acted for both companies and individuals investigated by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), HM Revenue and Customs, the 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 mean 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.
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:
- Investigations and prosecutions by the SFO, SOCA, CPS, DTI, OFT and FSA.
- Investigations and prosecutions by HM Inland Revenue and HM Customs and Excise.
- VAT investigations.
- DTI enquiries and investigations.
- Director disqualification proceedings.
- Investigations by the FSA.
- Stock Exchange enquiries.
- Enterprise Act 2002 investigations
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.
