Fraud is a complex, but increasingly common area of criminal law.

Some of the issues raised by fraud allegations require specialist knowledge. They may involve complex accounting procedures and are often levelled against those with no experience of the criminal law.

Most cases will also involve Proceeds of Crime Act procedures, which may involve Confiscation or Restraint Orders. These Orders have a significant impact during the case and far beyond.

For that reason, it is crucial to instruct lawyers who are not only specialists in crime, but who are familiar with defending fraud cases.
