Business Crime team successfully secures acquittal for Fraud Investigations into a leading theatre producer

18 April 2012

Our Business Crime team prepared the successful defence of a leading theatre producer charged with fraudulently taking investments for a critically acclaimed US stage musical.  

The defence ran at trial, which was accepted by the jury, was that genuine investments were sought which it was not possible to place due to the intervening collapse of the company. The defence was also able to show that certain witnesses were mistaken in their recollection.

The case was prosecuted by the Crown Prosecution Service Fraud Casework section.
