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.
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.
Financial Fraud and Money Laundering
Chambers has financial fraud and money laundering experts, with members who both prosecute and defend in this area and specialise in related regulatory work. Members of the team 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.
The team has 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 Barristers’ Chambers 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 are able to draft relevant documents and to advise on restraint, receivership and disclosure orders.
