Corporate crime

Corporate criminals are becoming more and more sophisticated, and businesses of all types and sizes can become the targets of criminal endeavours. We help clients put in place effective systems and controls to minimise the risk of your organisation falling victim to such crime; to ensure that your internal systems and processes are fit for purpose. 

We can also advise you on how to protect your reputation whether online or through traditional media; our defamation team are experienced in managing the reputational impacts of such cases.

Who do we help?

We help businesses of all types and sizes to protect their interests in regulatory investigations whether they are a victim of external criminal efforts or facing allegations themselves.

How much does this cost?

We take a pragmatic approach in relation to price, providing clients with a variety of options, including fixed fees. 

We publish pricing guidance in relation to motoring offences as required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority price transparency rules.
