The Fraud Act consolidated and simplified the old law and made it an offence to commit fraud by: false representation, a failure to disclose information or an abuse of position.
The Serious Fraud Office and Crown Prosecution Service and more recently the Financial Conduct Authority, now routinely bring significant prosecutions using this Act in response to alleged fraudulent acts occurring in many different sectors and involving conduct that may in part have occurred overseas.
We have significant experience of successfully representing clients accused of investment fraud, mortgage fraud, expenses claims, art fraud and other cases where people and on occasion companies have been accused of acting dishonestly.
