Fraud

Fraud Investigation Solicitors

The Fraud Act 2006 has enabled the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and the  Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to bring prosecutions for fraud much more easily. Consequently a fraud solicitor needs to keep abreast of changes in the law.

Appoint a fraud solicitor as soon as possible

Fraud is frequently a complex matter, often with a large amount of  documentation to be gone through. It is therefore important that this is done by an expert. A specialist can see what information can be used to build a defence. A fraud solicitor will know what information will be used for the prosecution. It is very important to build a defence strategy at the very beginning of an investigation. This is because it is very important to know when to answer a question, and when to exercise your right to remain silent. Adam Law solicitors have extensive experience of a wide range of fraud investigations. Therfore we urge you, for your own benefit, to contact us immediately. Delay can seriously affect your chances of avoiding conviction.

If you are concerned you may be facing charges for fraud, or are already facing charges, then it is essential you contact us as quickly as possible.  Phone us now on  0114 256 0111, or email us or use the form on this page.

Pre-Charge Representation for fraud

Be proactive. Appoint a fraud solicitor from the outset. This can lead to investigations being halted.

The early stages of an investigation can be critical and have a major influence on the outcome. Even before charges have been made it is critically important that you appoint a fraud solicitor. So we offer a ‘pre-charge’ service which includes:

  • advising on whether to challenge illegal searches and arrests, contest restraint (freezing) orders.
  • determining whether authorisation for surveillance is properly granted.
  • preparing detailed letters of representations
  • assisting with the return of seized property.

If you are concerned you may be facing charges for fraud, or are already facing charges, then it is essential you contact us as quickly as possible.  Phone us now on  0114 256 0111, or email us or use the form on this page.

Free initial consultation with a fraud solicitor

Fraud investigations can be daunting and confusing. So we offer a free initial telephone consultation. This is where we can make an early assessment of your situation. We aim to advise on a way to move forward. Take advantage of this, doing nothing will not help you and will often make the situation worse. There’s no obligation at all and the consultation is completely confidential.
