At Edwards & Company Solicitors we have specialist experience in advising clients accused of financially motivated, non-violent crime, often called White Collar Crime. Examples of white collar crimes include bribery, money laundering, tax evasion, cyber fraud, insider trading, copyright infringement and matters relating to the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.

There is an increasing range of financial and anti-corruption legislation which businesses and business people must comply with in addition to the everyday running of their enterprise. Without keeping up to date with this legislation, businesses, directors and business owners can find themselves facing white collar crime charges. It can be a minefield which requires thorough expert advice to navigate.

Our team of White Collar Crime solicitors based in Belfast, offer help and advice on the following white collar crimes and charges:

  • Fraud
  • Bribery
  • Insider Trading
  • Embezzlement
  • Cyber Crime
  • Copyright Infringement
  • Intellectual Property Law
  • Money Laundering
  • Identity Theft
  • Forgery
  • Tax Evasion

We have represented not just businesses but also professionals including dentists, optometrists, Company Directors and Financial Directors. We have also advised Directors who are the subject of disqualification.

As the authorities increasingly clamp down on financial crime and white collar crime, more and more people are becoming the subject of charges. If you think that you may be subject to a financial/white collar, criminal or regulatory investigation, we can help.
