We are frequently instructed at the outset during investigations, from the initial discovery of a potential liability through to trials and enforcement proceedings. Our barristers have been instructed to defend in some of the highest profile financial crime cases in recent years, including three of the most recent individuals prosecuted alongside Deferred Prosecution Agreements.
We are instructed by prosecutorial, regulatory and investigatory bodies in a wide variety of matters including bribery, tax fraud, pension fraud, money laundering and sanctions matters.
We act in prosecutions and investigations brought by:
- The Serious Fraud Office
- Crown Prosecution Service
- National Crime Agency
- Financial Conduct Authority
- The Pensions Regulator
Whether for the defence or prosecution, Crucible will be involved from the very first moment with your team right through to the end, advising and guiding our clients on an entire case strategy. Our pro-active approach addresses all stages of litigation, from disclosure to DPAs, and leaves nothing to chance ensuring our clients are prepared for every eventuality.
