Financial Crime

Our barristers have particular expertise in advising on all aspects of financial crime.

In this increasingly regulated sector, where the boundaries between criminal and civil litigation overlap significantly, the Financial Crime team at 2 Bedford Row has an outstanding reputation representing high-profile corporate clients as well as high net worth individuals. The team includes some of the top White Collar and Business Crime barristers in England and Wales.

The team advises and represents corporate and individual clients in criminal and regulatory investigations involving commercial and banking interests. Some barristers in the Financial Crime team have real-world experience of commercial life having previously worked in the City of London, whilst others are Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). Members provide specialist advice on cross-border investigations, legal professional privilege, Mutual Legal Assistance, money-laundering, tax, serious fraud, sanctions, financial services, bribery and corruption, cartel offences, insider-dealing, market-abuse investigations by the major prosecuting authorities such as the SFO, CMA and FCA, as well as challenges to the use of investigatory powers by the police, HMRC, NCA, SFO, FCA and other regulators.

Many members also have substantial prosecution experience which enables them to provide relevant advice on likely prosecution tactics and strategy. Members of the team also advise on private prosecutions.

Domestic and international clients are able to obtain clear, practical advice on all matters within jurisdictions in which our members are qualified to practise. Whether advising on the best strategy to avoid investigation, conducting internal investigations, advising on Deferred Prosecution Agreements or representing our clients in court, the legal directories agree that 2 Bedford Row is truly a market leader in this area of work.

We understand the current demands of advising and representing high-profile corporate clients and high net worth individuals, whether here or abroad. Please call John Grimmer or Paul Rodgers to discuss any particular requirements you may have.
