Fraud & Regulatory


Being accused of a financial crime can have a devastating impact on you. It can affect your business; your family and your entire well-being. It is often referred to as “White Collar Crime” but that doesn’t make it any easier for those facing the allegations.

Here at Adkirk Law we have extensive experience of defending and prosecuting serious and complex fraud cases. This dual role gives us a unique position in the market as very few practitioners have the experience of both prosecution and defence. This enables our experts to clearly see matters from both sides allowing us to prepare a robust, pro-active case for our clients.

Fraud investigations can be protracted and will often last years before a decision to charge or not is made. Many suspects lose valuable time simply waiting for a decision to be made instead of challenging the investigation and its actions. We can assist you in making those important decisions as to whether you have a legal challenge to search warrants; an arrest; the seizure of property; a restraint order freezing your bank accounts and even the grant of a production order allowing the investigation access to your bank account records. These pro-active judicial challenges can effectively stop illegal investigations in their tracks.

Our expertise is nationally recognised and we have acted in some of the most high profile cases. As a team we have nationwide connections to allow us to partner with the best of all the professionals you may need to assist in your case including the very best Barristers and QC’s; forensic accountants; forensic computer analysts; handwriting experts and voice recognition experts.

We recognise the potential for these allegations to damage irreparably the reputations of individuals and businesses and we aim to ensure that appropriate crisis management is at the forefront of our preparation.
