Our highly-respected fraud barristers specialise in complex cases of regulatory and criminal fraud-related work, both defending and prosecuting criminal and civil fraud matters.

Widely accepted to be one of the leading chambers for Business Crime & Fraud, our fraud barristers have been involved in many of the most recent significant and complex fraud cases.

Recognised as a dominant force in the area of business crime… bribery, banking fraud and boiler room investigations.
