Chambers has represented both individuals and companies in some of the most notable fraud cases in recent years. The extensive experience in complex matters of fraud has been acknowledged by commentators:
"Carmelite Chambers is a set of nigh on 80 barristers that is attracting more and more top notch criminal fraud work." (Chambers and Partners 2013)
“Carmelite Chambers is a set ... that has done a good job in the past few years of securing a sizeable slice of the fraud caseload pie. It is established as a good set for those looking for committed counsel who are ready to put the hours in to tackle document-heavy cases” (Chambers and Partners 2012).
Counsel are instructed in both private and publicly funded fraud matters in both the civil and criminal courts which include complaints related to corruption, cartels, boiler room fraud, diversion fraud, carousel fraud, NHS fraud and mortgage fraud. Recent instructions include the representation of defendants prosecuted as a result of major investigations by the SFO and FSA.
Members of Chambers provide focused advice from the investigation stage of proceedings through to trial. Chambers also represent those burdened by detailed and complex confiscation proceedings which, in many instances, continue long after the conclusion of criminal proceedings.
