Civil Fraud in UK. Edmonds Marshall McMahon is a unique firm of solicitors and barristers with an unrivalled track record in conducting large fraud investigations and prosecutions. The three founding partners have a combined total of 70 years’ experience in criminal justice and they use this background to offer a novel service to victims of fraud – that is, of course, the ability to bring a private prosecution. We also have leading civil fraud and trust practitioners who are recognised internationally as at the forefront of civil fraud, trust and asset tracing work.
Alongside criminal proceedings, civil litigation offers powerful remedies to locate, freeze and retrieve assets from fraudsters and those to whom they have transferred the proceeds of fraud. These can include worldwide freezing injunctions, entitling a claimant’s legal team to search premises and IT systems for evidence that is at risk of being improperly destroyed or tampered with. We undertake civil fraud, trust and asset tracing work and collaborate with other specialist firms where this is in our client’s best interests.
Alongside our lawyers, we have a dedicated investigations team comprising former investigators from the Serious Fraud Office and detectives from the Metropolitan Police. We work closely with our firm’s investigators to gather the best evidence to take cases forward. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to cases and pride ourselves on imaginative and speedy solutions, which yield exceptional results for our clients.
