Today is widely known that the occurrence of economically encouraged financial crimes in many societies is a considerable risk to the growth of economies and their steadiness. The authorities in UK continue to fight against money laundering, bribery, corruption, fraud and cyber crimes, as these offences are registered on a daily basis. If you are suspect of a financial crime in the UK it is recommended to ask for help from our defence solicitors in London.
What is a financial crime in UK
It is possible to split a financial crime into two fundamentally different, although closely combined categories of conduct. First, there are actions that deceitfully produce wealth for those involved in the behavior in question. As an example, the manipulation of the insider information or the acquisition of another individual’s property by dishonesty will consistently be done with the purpose of securing a material interest. On the other hand, an individual may get involved in deceit to secure material benefit for another person. Second, there are also financial crimes that do not include the dishonest taking of a profit but protect a benefit that has already been gained. An example of this kind of demeanor is when someone tries to launder criminal profits of another offence, in order to place the proceeds outside the reach of the rules and regulations.
Our criminal solicitors in UK can legally represent you in case of financial crime and can support you and offer the contribution to any authority that is in control with investigation of a crime in the business area.
Legal advice in financial crimes
Financial crimes usually cover the following offences our defence solicitors in London can legally assist you in:
• electronic crime;
• money laundering;
• terrorist financing;
• bribery and corruption;
• information security;
• market abuse and insider dealing.
By understanding what approach the prosecution is taking, our advisors can arrange a strategy intended to wrong-foot that line of attack. If the investigators and prosecution are unsuitably hostile and negative in the interviews and pre-trial relations, that might offer an opportunity to present a more attractive and positive case in the hearing. The interviews frequently point to ranges that come up later in cross-examination and deliver evidence as to what questions the defendant will encounter in the Court of Law.
Defence for money laundering in UK
Money laundering is spread worldwide, including in the UK. The criminal offence involves persons who want to erase the track of the money gained through illegal methods by placing them in varied fields like real estate, financial institutions or all kinds of organizations. Billions of dollars are registered each year as laundered money, but the authorities in UK have implemented all kinds of strategies to stop such crimes from developing. If persons are accused of money laundering and detained for this reason, it is best to ask for complete legal support from our UK criminal solicitors. Having experience in such field will lead to a suitable approach and a better understanding of the case, leading to a positive result of the case.
Defence in bribery cases
The act of offering money, assets or other valuable things to a public official in exchange for all kinds of favors is called bribery. Just like in cases of money laundering but at a large scale, bribery is often met in all types of business fields or areas of interest. We remind that it is illegal to offer bribe to a public official who can offer benefits in different domains. Also, it is against the law to offer money as bribery in companies for commercial deals or purchase favors. Individuals who are found guilty of bribery can be sent to imprisonment for several years. If you have been accused of bribery and you need legal advice, we suggest you ask our criminal lawyers in London who can offer assistance from the moment you have become a suspect in a certain situation.
