Criminal Fraud & Proceeds of Crime

No5 has an enviable reputation for its expertise in this niche area. Members have appeared in courts throughout the UK in many of the most serious money laundering and fraud cases.

Financial Fraud And Money Laundering
There are few sets in the country with this breadth of experience in Money Laundering, Tax and VAT fraud, Pension Fraud, Duty Evasion and Company Fraud and more general fraud work. Chambers has members who both prosecute and defend in this area and who specialise in related regulatory work. We are available to advise on compliance and at pre trial investigatory stages in ongoing cases. The breadth of the No5 client base ensures that in appropriate cases commercial and civil expertise is available to call upon from within our ranks. The international ambit of much of the work undertaken by members in this area necessitates an easy familiarity with the international judicial co-operation regimes and the law on extradition. We have close working relationships with other relevant professionals in particular forensic accountants, actuaries, economists and financial services experts whose assistance can be called upon when necessary in any particular case.

Proceeds of crime
No5 has a specialist team of practitioners available to advise those facing or pursuing criminal confiscation and civil recovery. We advise professionals and corporations as to their obligations regarding compliance with money laundering provisions. Members of Chambers are able to draft relevant documents and to advise on restraint, receivership and disclosure orders.
