If you are facing a business or professional crisis involving fraud or a related situation such as corruption, money laundering or tax evasion, the implications can be devastating whether you have been accused of committing it or are a victim of it. 

Damage to your business, personal reputation and career can be irreparable if not dealt with swiftly. Even if you are a witness being asked to give evidence there can be repercussions if not managed carefully.  Seeking specialist advice quickly and early can often optimise the outcome for you, limiting the damage and putting you in the best position.

We act for clients in the most complex and challenging situations: internal investigations, defending in criminal investigations and prosecutions,  bringing and defending fraud claims in the civil courts or private prosecutions, advising in employment and disciplinary proceedings, managing the media and fighting their case in court when necessary.

The Kingsley Napley fraud team is made up of highly experienced lawyers from throughout the firm including our criminal defence, dispute resolution, employment, regulatory and private prosecution teams. 

We represent corporates and individuals,  defendants, victims, and witnesses - we understand the strategic, tactical and financial considerations required in fraud matters.
