Fraud Solicitors Secure Acquittal by Jury in Fraud Allegation Case

16 April 2013

Fraud Solicitors at Slater and Gordon successfully secured the acquittal by a Jury of a leading theatre producer who had been accused of fraud by abuse of position.

The fraud allegations related to investments made in a leading Broadway Musical "The Addams Family" which it was said had been improperly diverted.

Our Fraud Investigation Solicitors prepared a detailed defence on behalf of the client which the Jury accepted and showed that the prosecution had incorrectly analysed the facts.

After the verdict out client sent us a thank you note:

“We are overwhelmed with gratitude to you … for all your help and support. We never doubted your professionalism but we have both felt truly supported, listened to (a rarity in our dealings with legal services) and respected throughout what has been a trying ordeal for us both.”
