Our news page has recently focussed on the Bribery Act and related offences. At Edwards & Co. Solicitors we have specialist experience in advising clients accused of financially motivated, non-violent crime, often called White Collar Crime. Examples include bribery, money laundering, tax evasion, cyber fraud and matters relating to the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. We have represented not just businesses but also individuals and professionals such as dentists, optometrists, pharmacists, Company Directors and Financial Directors. We have also advised Directors who are the subject of disqualification proceedings.
There is an increasing range of financial and anti-corruption legislation which businesses and business people must comply with in addition to the every day running of their enterprise. It can be a minefield which requires our expert advice to navigate. If you require guidance or if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to answer charges of white collar crime we can help.
