Fraud/Criminal Defence

When providing expert accounting evidence where individuals are subject to prosecution for fraud or white collar crime, a proper understanding of the accountancy evidence can have a material impact on the assessment of the strength of the prosecution evidence and the manner in which the defence is conducted.

We offer our team’s extensive experience to provide independent and objective advice to consider:

  • If the prosecution accountancy evidence is:
    • Accurate
    • Complete
    • Consistent with the available evidence and the defendant’s explanations
  • Whether the conclusions drawn by the prosecution from the accountancy evidence are sound
  • If the accounting evidence provides alternative explanations for the allegations advanced by the prosecution

Our experience includes cases involving:

  • Teeming and lading fraud
  • Duty evaded on contraband goods (cigarettes, tobacco and alcohol)
  • Carousel Fraud
  • Theft by employees
  • Conspiracy to defraud
  • VAT and tax fraud
  • ‘Kickback’ fraud
  • False accounting
  • Wrongful trading
  • Money laundering offences
