Financial Crime

A financial 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, SFO, HMRC, FCA, Trading Standards, NCA or any other investigatory body.

Richardson Lissack has the expertise and experience of dealing with highly complex 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 our dedicated and diligent legal team. 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, and Financial Investigators amongst others.

If you are looking to instruct a team of lawyers and experts from the outset of the investigation, then contact us at our London or Manchester offices. Please note that this service is only available on a privately funded basis and is not covered under legal aid.

Our lawyers are available 24/7 to assist you and provide legal advice. Contact London 020 3753 5352 or Manchester 0161 834 7284. Alternatively you can email
