Representation for Directors

Here at CM Solicitors we understand the highly pressurised position that directors of companies are in. When serious criminal issues arise in firms relating to complex Fraud, corporate manslaughter, environmental offences, bribery, insider trading, money laundering and other serious offences it is highly likely that the directors of that company will come under investigation from the relevant authorities including the SFO, Environmental agency, FSA and others.

CM solicitors are equipped with the necessary skills and experience to represent directors from the investigation stage right through to court proceedings including offences arising out of the proceeds of crime act 2002.

Instructing CM Solicitors means that you instruct a legal team not just a solicitor. Your case will be conducted by the director of the fraud and regulatory department, Ben Richardson. He will be assisted by at least two other lawyers plus your Barrister and Queens Counsel.

We believe that having a legal team rather than just a solicitor gives clients complete faith in their representatives and they take great comfort in knowing that they can call and speak to one of a number of lawyers who have in depth knowledge of their case. They take satisfaction knowing they are dealing with experts in their field of criminal law and that a director is personally dealing with their case.

Further to this CM Solicitor only instruct the most experienced, motivated and tactically astute Barristers and Queens Counsel. We do not instruct Solicitor-Advocates (higher rights advocates). We believe in quality representation.

We are happy to take instructions in all criminal matters from directors on a privately funded basis, insurance covered legal fees and also via legal aid. We are able to meet the needs of every client no matter how your legal fees are being funded.
