Specialist London criminal defence lawyer for fraud cases
The Fraud Act 2006 covers a range of offences including fraud by false representation, fraud by failing to disclose information and fraud by abuse of position. From benefit fraud through to more conspiracy to defraud, the offences carry potential sentences which vary considerably, generally based on the value of the alleged offence.
Fraud cases can involve individuals or companies and it is not uncommon for innocent parties to find themselves under suspicion for crimes committed by associates or colleagues, even if they themselves are completely free of blame for the offence.
Disclosure of evidence in fraud cases can be complex and ‘paper heavy’, often involving significant quantities of paperwork, computer data, phone records and bank records. The prosecution will typically serve literally thousands of pages of evidence which must be assessed by the court, so in order for a trial to be fair it is essential that an expert defence lawyer is instructed to examine that evidence from a defence perspective. The level of expertise required to accurately and thoroughly carry out this work is immense.
