Our members have appeared in many of the largest and most prominent fraud trials in recent years. Their wide experience in cases of fraud, market abuse and money laundering enables them to give specialist advice to clients facing investigation at every level.
Barristers at Mountford Chambers regularly represent financial professionals – accountants, bankers, dealers, brokers, fund managers, IFA’s, solicitors and others who face allegations of fraud in the criminal courts. They have appeared in the most complex cases of market manipulation and financial corruption to have been prosecuted in the UK. They are frequently asked to advise clients in other jurisdictions in related cases and investigations.
Our members deal with all types of financial crime, including:
Market abuse and rate manipulation
Bribery and corruption
EU fraud including MTIC fraud
Other forms of VAT fraud
Building and construction fraud
Personal and corporate tax evasion
Advance fee fraud
Mortgage and loan fraud
Carbon credit fraud
Company law offences
Members of Mountford Chambers have developed skills in these – and other more specific areas of financial crime – over many years. They understand financial markets – the way they work and the ways in which they are abused. They are familiar with balance sheets, auditing systems, banking policies and accounting procedures. They have dealt with almost every form of financial corruption – and can cross-examine professionals and expert witnesses confidently and from a position of specialist knowledge and understanding. They have wide experience of dealing with investigative and regulatory authorities – the SFO, FCA, NCA and specialist divisions of HMRC. They are regularly instructed to advise and represent clients who want to resolve investigations without prosecution.
Our members attach great importance to offering a continuity of service – a service which begins in the first days of investigation and gives clients the confidence of knowing that they have access to expert support and advice at all times – and the highest level of representation in any court proceedings. By maintaining this level of dedicated service, barristers at Mountford Chambers are recognised as being at the cutting edge of the profession in all forms of financial crime.
