Civil Fraud

Our expert team has an excellent track record in advising on high profile cases. Civil fraud is a complex area of law, often involving high-value disputes threatening to businesses and their reputations.

Fraud claims are challenging and particularly stressful for clients. Our experienced team is focussed on providing clear, strategic and solution-focused advice.

Our skilled solicitors investigate, initiate or defend claims involving fraud and recovering the proceeds of fraud in this jurisdiction and overseas. We have extensive experience in dealing with all types of fraud claims including conspiracy, deceit, breach of fiduciary duty and dishonest assistance.

Croft Solicitors’ fraud practice complements our general litigation and insolvency practices. Where necessary, we coordinate teams of external consultants, including asset tracers, enforcement agencies, process servers, forensic IT experts, and lawyers outside the jurisdiction.

Examples of fraud cases include:

Acting for an investment fund against its former director and solicitor, their spouses and a number of corporate entities in which they held interests

Obtaining worldwide freezing orders in London and enforced internationally

Acting in a case involving serious allegations of conspiracy, intimidation and deceit against a firm of solicitors and a senior politician
