An investigation into a criminal offence has a dramatic effect on the individual or company at the centre of the allegation. This can affect the personal life of the individual and have an adverse effect on the company continuing to conduct its business. It is important that you are represented from the outset if you or your company becomes embroiled in an investigation, whether it is by the Police, HMRC, SFO, FCA, Trading Standards, NCA or any other investigatory body.
Richardson Lissack has the expertise and experience dealing with investigations on behalf of our clients. We have a tenacious and astute approach to dealing with these types of matters. In some circumstances we are able to make representations to the investigators which may result in no charges being brought against the individual or company.
Representation at the investigation stage does not commence and conclude with the interview under caution. There are many avenues to explore pre and post interview. It is vitally important that you receive advice from a dedicated and diligent law firm who are on hand whenever you need them. We are available 24/7 to discuss your case, should you require any assistance outside of office hours. We have a team of multi-disciplined experts who can assist at the investigation stage; these may include researchers and investigators, Queens Counsel, Forensic Accountants, financial investigators amongst others.
It is correct that every person is entitled to free and independent legal advice at the Police station under the legal aid scheme, this is not means tested. If you are looking to instruct a team of Lawyers and experts from the outset of the investigation, and you would like to be have a Solicitor at the head of your team, at Director level then contact us at our London or Manchester offices. Please note that this service is only available on a private funded basis and is not covered under legal aid.
