Fraud and White Collar Crime

Serious Fraud Office

Cases are vetted by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) to establish if they meet certain criteria. These include the value of the alleged loss, whether the case has a significant international dimension, and whether highly specialist knowledge is required to investigate and prosecute.

Where the SFO does not take on a particular case, specialist police fraud squads, the National Crime Agency, or the Crown Prosecution Service may also become involved.

At Bindmans, we have been involved in a number of significant SFO investigations over recent years, including complex investigations into allegations of fraud bribery and corruption, often spanning more than one country. Our team has experience of preparing for interviews conducted by the SFO, and advising on the specialist powers available to regulators in cases of this kind.

Where required, we work alongside forensic accountants and tax advisers, who assist in the preparation of expert evidence when defending proceedings on behalf of individuals.
