While criminal fraud investigations often start suddenly with dawn raids, arrests and interviews under caution, the genesis of a pension investigation can be much more subtle.
Clients may face initial questions from their regulatory body long before they are aware of possible criminal action being taken. The provision of information by a client at that early stage, often under powers of compulsion, can have a significant impact on the development of the investigation.
Understanding the flow of information and evidence between agencies and the powers and constraints of each investigative body is vital. Our reputation for challenging the demands of regulatory and enforcement agencies is unrivalled and we regularly advise on abuse of the prosecution process, legality of orders and judicial reviews of decisions made by public bodies.
We have links to specialist experts in the fields of computer forensics and asset tracing to put together a highly skilled, multidisciplinary team to investigate and defend your case.
