MPR Solicitors acting for Accident Claims Management Company in fraud and money laundering investigation

  • Posted

Seema Parikh and her team at the Firm’s Serious and Complex Crime Department were called in to advise the directors of a national claims management company following a large scale operation by the Met’s Organised Crime and Fraud Team. There were dawn raids across the country and several arrests were made. Property and high value performance cars were impounded by the police.

The Team immediately took stock of the case and through a series of decisive negotiations with the police managed to restore seized vehicles valued at £300,000.00 avoiding the need to go to court and saving thousands of pounds in legal costs for their client. The business was able to carry on during the long on-going investigation.
