Chambers has substantial experience encompassing the full spectrum of business crime and financial regulation. Our barristers, including those ranked by the leading directories, routinely act in complex matters both for prosecuting agencies and on behalf defendant companies and directors. The strength of our Business Crime group has been reinforced by our barristers undertaking secondments to the Serious Fraud Office, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Payment System Regulator, and white-collar boutique firms, both legal and accountancy. Members have acted on behalf of FTSE100 companies, international finance companies, and high net-worth individuals. Chambers prides itself on offering a professional and discreet service.
A series of major financial scandals and high-profile accidents, taken together with an increasing number of statutes and regulations, have highlighted the significance of corporate responsibility and the State’s willingness to hold those responsible to account. As such, businesses should be proactive rather than reactive in requesting advice to insulate and protect . Chambers can provide advice, for example, in respect of due diligence and effective procedures, and provide training and interactive seminars. Further, members can be instructed to undertake risk assessments, corporate investigations and assist in large scale legal professional privilege reviews.
Recent business crime instructions include, by way of example, a multi-million-pound trading standards prosecutions, advising the European subsidiary of an international finance company (with $2.5billion holdings) on insider trading and defending in the first data ICO prosecution. Please review the profile of individual barristers of our the Business Crime group for further case examples.
