What happens in a companies investigation?
made it significantly easier for government agencies including the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and the (CPS) to prosecute companies for a variety of fraudulent practices. Having said that, there are a wide range of agencies that are empowered to pursue companies investigations under the Fraud Act 2006, as well as to investigate a broad swathe of regulatory breaches, particularly in the finance and insurance markets.
That’s why there are now such a large number of prosecutions under the Fraud Act 2006, and why the need for defence lawyers with the experience to handle company investigations into allegations of fraud or serious regulatory breaches has never been greater.
Our extensive experience of the fallout from companies investigations includes representing clients in a number of related issues, including conspiracy to defraud, fraudulent trading and false accounting.
Not only can such prosecutions carry the risk of substantial financial penalties and even custodial sentences, it’s important to understand that once they have started, company investigations like these can run for years, leading to extensive reputation damage as well as emotional harm.

I was represented by Slater and Gordon in a drink driving case. They could not have been more helpful. My solicitor supported me with understanding and consideration; listening to my concerns and worries prior to the case, whilst supplying me with sensible and practical advice. I could not have managed this awful experience without the support I gained from Slater and Gordon. Mrs A, South East (criminal defence case)
I found my solicitor to be friendly, professional and courteous and furthermore always available either by phone or near instant email replies. My case looked cut and dry and I was expecting a lengthy ban and fine, but somehow the case was thrown out! Mr Q, Essex (criminal defence case)
