Civil fraud claims
We understand the disruption and stress that fraud can cause to you and your business.
Our civil fraud solicitors will work closely with you to help identify and deal with fraud as quickly as possible, minimising any loss to you and your business and increasing the chances of recovery.
In situations where the fraudster does not have any assets or cannot be found, we will advise you on your options to pursue third parties who might have inadvertently benefitted from or been indirectly responsible for the fraud, such as employers of fraudsters and innocent recipients of fraudulently obtained goods.
We will provide you with detailed and prompt advice to enable you to decide on the best route to resolution. Initiating a civil action can often lead to a quicker resolution than criminal proceedings, given the time often required by the police and regulatory authorities to decide whether there is sufficient evidence to prosecute. We are happy to run a civil claim for you in conjunction with and alongside criminal proceedings, or we can help you use information obtained in pursuing your civil action to refer a claim to the police or regulatory authorities.
Where necessary, we will use external expertise such as handwriting experts, trace agents, forensic IT experts, forensic accountants and asset tracers to ensure that you receive the best evidence and support in dealing with your fraud claim.
