Fraud and Regulatory Law

The Economic Crime Agency was formed out of three public bodies, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO,) the Financial Services Authority (FSA) and the Office of Fair Trading (OFT). This new agency now deals with the investigation and prosecution of corporate crime.

CM Solicitors have vast amounts of experience in dealing with these types of matters. Fraud cases can be long and protracted, sometimes over a number of years. Here at CM Solicitors we understand the difficulties and distress this may have on your personal life and careers. We offer support throughout investigations which may prove invaluable should your case reach court proceedings.
