Fraud & Financial Crime

For Individuals

Fraud cases are a specialism within themselves. Typically Fraud cases are complex and document heavy, demanding great care, consideration and analysis. It is critical that clients are represented by lawyers with the necessary resources and expertise. Saunders Solicitors are uniquely equipped to defend such cases.

Based in the City of London, Saunders Solicitors has acted in some of the largest fraud prosecutions in the country with electronic data stretching into terrabytes. We work closely with leading forensic experts. A founder member of the Specialist Fraud Panel and Very High Costs Case Contracting Panel, Saunders Solicitors are committed to providing expert and tailored advice in your case.

Saunders Solicitors defend cases bought by amongst others, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), City of London police and Local Authorities. We acted in the first ever acquittal of an insider dealing charge against a city lawyer and successfully defended the directors of a major company against prosecution.
