Any fraud, regardless of the value, can be extremely stressful and result in severe consequences, affecting one’s character and reputation.
Prosecutions can feel intrusive and overbearing. We are fully aware of the stress and burden of such cases and we will ensure that your designated lawyer will vigorously defend your case.
Lawyers at Cantaris Locke Solicitors have many years of experience in defending fraud cases prosecuted by the likes of the NCA, Financial Conduct Authority, Serious Fraud Office, Trading Standards and the HMRC. We have secured numerous acquittals in high profile cases that involved complex high value fraud against established organisations and mainstream banks.
We instruct skilled barristers and financial experts that specialise in this field.
Even in cases where our clients have pleaded guilty, on numerous occasions we have managed to negotiate basis of pleas with the prosecution to lower our client’s role and avoid prison sentences. This even happened in cases where there have been losses of hundreds of thousands of pounds.
