Our civil fraud work is primarily concerned with discovering if a commercial fraud has been committed and, if so, recovering the financial loss for the client (Claimant). We carry out both claimant and defendant work and will act for defendants who contest litigation brought against them. Whilst civil fraud focuses on the financial aspect (i.e. the recovery of damages/loss/costs) some frauds may also constitute a criminal offence and be punishable with criminal sanctions.
We believe we are uniquely placed to ensure clients are given global advice to take account of the cross over between civil and criminal fraud. Our experience in both arenas means that we can comprehensively deal with fraud and place our clients in the best possible position.
Our criminal fraud work is wide ranging due to the different types of fraud and the investigative and prosecuting authorities. Criminal fraud usually involves a preliminary investigation, a decision as to prosecution and (where appropriate) a prosecution which will culminate in a sentence upon conviction. Unlike civil fraud its focus is not commercial but whether an offence(s) has been committed and, if so, the appropriate sentence or penalty. Accordingly liberty and reputation are at stake.
At Cubism Law we recognise there can be a myriad of complex and diverse issues involved and each case requires a bespoke approach. This can mean accessing expert opinion at an early stage (such as forensic accounting or other spheres of expertise) and adding lawyers from other disciplines (such as tax, insurance, banking) to the team to ensure a case is thoroughly prepared.
