Chambers is recognised for the provision of specialist advice and representation concerning corporate financial crime.
Our advocates provide advice to a variety of organisations and officials suspected of committing financial crime, from the earliest stages of investigation through to criminal prosecution or other enforcement action.
Members are instructed in a wide range of prosecutions concerning contraventions of Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, Companies Act 2006 and Bribery Act 2010, as well as corporate fraud, embezzlement and tax evasion.
In addition to appearing in criminal courts throught Scotland, our counsel advise on non-prosecutorial procedures, including self-reporting of bribery offences and enforcement action by regulators such as HM Revenue & Customs and the Financial Conduct Authority.
