MPR solicitors instructed in Trading Standards conspiracy to defraud case

The firm’s Business Crime Team has been instructed to defend a Company Director in a prosecution being brought by Trading Standards into an alleged car-ringing fraud. The trial has been fixed for 2016.

At MPR solicitors, we cover all types of Trading Standards investigations and prosecutions involving trade descriptions, misleading prices, trademarks, consumer credit, copyright and product safety and pyramid selling.

MPR’s Business Crime Team consists of highly experienced fraud lawyers with business acumen. We understand the needs of corporate clients as well as individuals. Strategic decisions are often key to the success of a well laid defence strategy. Considerations such as reputation damage also have to be taken into account in some cases.  We can advise corporates, SMEs, individuals in relation to investigations and prosecutions by:

  • Trading Standards
  • HMRC for fraud, tax evasion and false accounting
  • VAT tribunals
  • DWP
  • Business Innovation & Skills (BIS)
  • Health and Safety Executive (HSE)
  • Department of the Environment
  • HMRC and the NCA in cases of money laundering within a regulated sector

Once instructed, we can take the weight off your shoulders and liaise directly with the authority concerned. We can work as your sole legal advisors or in conjunction your in-house legal team or legal counsel.

We are a London based firm but we serve the needs of our clients both nationally and internationally. We offer City expertise at regional prices.
