Cyber Crime in UK. Edmonds Marshall McMahon have extensive experience in conducting successful investigations and prosecutions of cybercrime cases. We have a dedicated investigations team who are well experienced in the unique challenges that result from companies and individuals being targeted by cybercrime.
Cybercrime offences require a rapid response to minimise commercial and reputational loss to companies and individuals. A private prosecution enables victims to take swift and critical action against perpetrators.
We commonly deal with the following:
- Cyber stalking, harassment and malicious communications
- Cyber fraud and theft; and
- Data theft and Data Protection breaches by ex-employees or current employees
The nature of cybercrime offences means that they often span multiple jurisdictions. Our team is experienced in identifying perpetrators from across the globe and advising on mutual legal assistance and extradition.
Cybercrime investigations and prosecutions generate a vast amount of electronic material. At Edmonds Marshall McMahon, our team are experts on evidence gathering, e-disclosure and document review. We can provide a rapid and comprehensive service to the influx of data that is generated from cybercrime cases.
Following a successful and comprehensive investigation, we can privately prosecute offenders and advise on the benefits of applying for restraint and confiscation orders, including cryptocurrency and cryptoassets. We have significant experience in obtaining and robustly enforcing court orders on behalf of our clients.
