    Understanding Fraud: Civil vs Criminal

    Fraud can be prosecuted both in civil and criminal courts, each with its own set of procedures and standards of proof. In civil cases, individuals or businesses can pursue a claim against the alleged fraudster to recover assets or seek compensation. Civil fraud claims require establishing that the defendant intentionally misled the claimant, causing them financial harm.

    Criminal fraud, on the other hand, is a crime that can be prosecuted by authorities such as the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) or the Serious Fraud Office (SFO). Criminal proceedings can result in fines, imprisonment, or confiscation of assets. It is important to note that civil and criminal fraud proceedings can run concurrently, and pursuing a civil claim does not preclude reporting the fraud to the authorities.

    The Importance of Fraud Solicitors

    When facing fraud allegations, it is crucial to seek the guidance of experienced fraud solicitors who specialise in this complex area of law. Our team of dedicated fraud defence solicitors has a deep understanding of the legal intricacies involved in fraud cases. We provide comprehensive support and guidance throughout all stages of the legal process, ensuring that our clients receive the best possible defence.

    Handling Investigations and Opposing Detention

    Fraud investigations can be invasive and distressing. Our fraud solicitors will assist and advise you throughout the fraud investigation process, helping you understand your rights and ensuring that your interests are protected. We have extensive experience in opposing detention and forfeiture of cash, especially in cases where the authorities have seized assets during the investigation. If your assets have been detained, we can help you challenge the forfeiture and expedite the process of recovering your cash.

    Challenging Restraint Orders and Protecting Your Assets

    During fraud investigations, authorities may apply for a court order to restrain the defendant’s assets, preventing them from accessing or disposing of their own money. These orders can be highly restrictive and can have significant consequences for individuals and businesses. Our fraud defence solicitors have a track record of successfully challenging restraint orders, ensuring that our clients retain control over their assets. We can negotiate with the authorities or apply to the courts to vary the terms of these orders, allowing you to access the assets you need to support yourself and your family.

    Effective Defence in Prosecutions and Trials

    If you are facing prosecution for a fraud offence, our experienced fraud solicitors will provide expert defence representation at every stage of the criminal proceedings. Fraud trials can be lengthy and complex, but we have a strong track record of achieving favourable outcomes for our clients. Our team will carefully examine the evidence against you, identify areas of challenge, and work with expert witnesses and barristers to present a robust defence strategy. We understand the importance of effective communication and will ensure that your case is presented in a clear and compelling manner to the judge and jury.

    Challenging Confiscation Orders: Protecting Your Assets

    Following a fraud conviction, the prosecution may seek a confiscation order to recover the benefit obtained from the offence or the available assets, whichever is lower. These orders can result in significant financial obligations that can impact you and your dependents long after the conclusion of the case. Our fraud defence solicitors are skilled at challenging confiscation orders, presenting strong arguments to resist the orders or argue for reduced figures. We will fight to protect your assets and ensure that any financial obligations are fair and reasonable during confiscation proceedings.

    Appeals: Seeking Justice

    If you have been convicted of a fraud offence and believe that there are grounds for appeal, our fraud defence solicitors can assist you in challenging the conviction, sentence, or confiscation order. Appeals must be lodged within a specific timeframe, usually within 28 days of the order being made. Our experienced team will thoroughly review your case, identify potential grounds for appeal, and diligently pursue the necessary legal avenues to seek justice on your behalf.
