ABV Solicitors have considerable experience in representing those accused of being involved in investment frauds sometimes described as "boiler room frauds".
The alleged frauds are often high value, complex and involve multiple defendants. They are prosecuted by a variety of law enforcement agencies including the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), National Crime Agency (NCA), Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and Local Authorities amongst others.
Whilst there are many types of Investment Frauds, they typically allege the selling of investments at grossly overvalued prices by brokers or salesman using high -pressure selling methods and making misleading assurances/false representations as to the true value of the investment. Often the investors are vulnerable or elderly.
These cases require careful and skilful preparation of the defence case as the consequences of a conviction are grave.
ABV have a proven track record of dealing with such cases. We have successfully represented suspects throughout the UK, on some of the largest prosecutions of Investment Fraud ever brought in the UK. These suspects range from those responsible for setting up and operating the businesses through to senior and junior brokers or sales personnel.
