Fraud and Finding a Fraud Solicitor
27 July 2020
It’s not a situation anybody wants to find themselves in as nobody wants to be in trouble. It can be a frightening experience to be accused of fraud. The stress and anxiety that is caused by being arrested, often without warning, can mean that finding a fraud solicitor who has the expertise to help you is essential. When faced with a personal or professional dilemma, you want to be assured that you have the best legal representation to support you through an investigation into fraud. This is where we can help.
At ABV Solicitors, we have a strong reputation for successfully defending fraud cases. We have been involved in some of the most highly complex and serious fraud cases. We help with all stages of the fraud investigation, from offering advice after the first approach by law enforcement has been made, through to representation at court. We also assist with ancillary financial matters, such as applications to vary or discharge Restraint Orders, confiscation proceedings, as well as other asset recovery proceedings.
How soon should I get a fraud solicitor?
In some cases, assets can be restrained at an early stage. When being interviewed for criminal or quasi-criminal cases, this can be extremely stressful and it is essential that you seek legal representation as soon as possible. Having a solicitor from the outset will give you the best achievable outcomes as we are fully trained and experienced in dealing with these stages of the investigation. You will certainly be hoping for the best outcomes and this is what we aim to achieve.
How we can help
We will ensure that you understand what you have been charged with. We will explain your rights in relation to the allegations made against you. Our representation at an early stage can really influence the result of whether or not your case becomes a formal charge and, in some cases, conviction.
We instruct leading fraud barristers, QC’s, and forensic and financial experts. With this experience, you can be sure that you are getting the best service possible in your case. We are practised in representing companies and their directors. You can be sure that our support is what you need.
Which part of the country do you cover?
Our practice is based in London and we are proud to offer a nationwide service. We are available 24/7 for police station advice and assistance, so you can be assured that when you need us, we’ll be there for you. We can speak confidentially with our clients to offer the best advice for their situation.
Anything else I need to know?
We know that it can be difficult to face a stressful situation head-on; sometimes it feels easier to do nothing and hope it goes away. We are here to take the strain and do what needs to be done to get the best possible outcome for you. Let us weather the storm and shelter you from it with our guidance, expertise, and experience. We’ll be there for you, no matter what.
