We are excited to announce that Edmonds Marshall McMahon has been included in The Times Best Law Firms 2022 in the category of Financial Crime, Fraud & Regulatory. This list recognises the most highly regarded legal practices in England and Wales, all of which were chosen by other law firms.
The Times assembled this list in collaboration with Statista, an international market research firm. Statista conducted a survey among legal professionals, asking solicitors and barristers to recommend the best firms in categories covering business, public and private-client law. This is the first time that Edmonds Marshall McMahon has featured in The Times Best Law Firms and, with our 10 year anniversary approaching, we are delighted to receive recognition at this time.
Edmonds Marshall McMahon is the UK’s first and only specialist private prosecution firm. As The Times reported in September 2021, we recently secured the conviction of property developer Eli Taktouk who defrauded investors out of £2,500,000. After a four week private prosecution, Taktouk was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment for fraud and forgery offences against our client.
As The Times list explains, Edmonds Marshall McMahon also undertakes a significant amount of anti-corruption work for overseas governments. For example, we have been instructed by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service since 2018 to assist with an investigation into the misappropriation of state funds, totalling hundreds of millions of dollars.
