Criminal and civil fraud.

Crucible’s barristers are regularly instructed to prosecute and defend in the most complex of criminal frauds.

In civil fraud claims, we have significant experience of bringing our criminal expertise to support both claimants and defendants in those proceedings, especially where they entail complex and cross-jurisdictional matters.

In the criminal matters, we advise clients from pre-charge to trial, possible sentence, confiscation and appeal.

We have acted in the very highest profile fraud cases brought by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), HMRC, FCA, the Pensions Regulator, and the CPS (among others). Our pedigree is illustrated by the cases we have appeared in, from Libor and NHS Price Fixing to Tabenula insider dealer and G4S. Our depth of experience is such that we are often the very first point of contact that clients reach out for.
