White collar defence

We act for individuals and companies in relation to the most serious allegations of financial misconduct.


This includes investigations where the alleged loss exceeds £100m, and we are skilled in advising individual and corporate clients who face dual criminal and civil liability. Our experience includes defending allegations of:

  • Libor manipulation
  • Intra- and inter-company fraud
  • Anomalies in securities trading
  • Trade mark infringement
  • Collective investment scheme investigations
  • Insider trading
  • Specialist investigations and prosecutions led by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Serious Fraud Office

 We are familiar with the requirements of detailed forensic investigation of large quantities of data and documentation. Our lawyers are experienced in dealing with cases of great complexity and are able to offer assistance when criminal allegations become intertwined with aspects of civil and commercial law.
