Our Business Crime team successfully conclude Mortgage Fraud case
04 July 2011
Our Business Crime team successfully represented a senior Midlands Solicitor who was charged by the SFO for allegedly assisting Ian McGarry and the Afsal brothers in defrauding a number of lending institutions, including Nationwide Building Society and Bank of Ireland, of significant sums by way of fraudulent valuations.
The client was acquitted of all charges. We asserted that as a Solicitor she had not knowingly participated in the fraudulent scheme, that the lending institutions all had instructed independent Solicitors who had similar information to our client and that in a number of cases others who plainly appeared culpable had not been charged.
The client’s acquittal followed a six month trial period and two years of detailed trial preparation.
