Fraudulent Trading

Owing to the wide range of conduct embraced by this offence, this is an increasingly popular charge for Prosecutors challenging Company Owners & Directors. Fraudulent Trading involves the carrying out of a business with the intention of defrauding creditors or any other person for any fraudulent purpose.

Whether you are accused of being part of a company set up specifically for fraudulent objectives or you are running a legitimate business and accused of dishonest acts; the Fraud Solicitors at this firm have the proficiency to articulate the best strategy and secure the highest chances of success for you.

Cases of this nature often involve numerous defendants and substantial volumes of evidence, requiring the expertise of meticulous and analytical Lawyers. Our Fraud Solicitors will scrutinise the prosecution's evidence to identify weaknesses and otherwise missing evidence. We will challenge unlawfully obtained evidence and evidence which is prevented from being admitted in the Court by law. 

Time and time again we have successfully defended and secured acquittals for those engaged in business. Regardless of the nature of your company and the nature of the acts alleged, the key factor in prosecutions of this nature is that the business was involved in some degree of dishonesty and that you, as a key figure in the company were intentionally involved.

How our Fraud Solicitors defend Fraudulent Trading allegations

Proving intention is the duty of the prosecutors who are absent exact knowledge of the nature of your business and its daily affairs. We explore the circumstances surrounding your case fully and always seek to defend on the front-foot. We will work with you to understand the activities of your business, speak to those who will positively affirm your case and trawl through your records to identify material which will help present your case in your favour. Our Fraud Lawyers will create a defence strategy to fight your case and collect evidence, witness statements and other material which will support your account of the events.
