Civil Fraud

With a range of commercial and regulatory expertise, our team of civil fraud experts deals with all types of fraud related work from cheque fraud and employee fraud to misappropriation of company or client funds as well as major domestic and international fraud. We also work closely with our intellectual property practitioners to cover the misuse of confidential information, trade secrets and other intellectual property.

Asset recovery is a core part of our practice. Our barristers have experience of domestic and international tracing - we are happy to work with forensic accountants and legal teams overseas in multi-jurisdictional disputes and have experience advising on conflict of laws issues.

We understand that speed is essential in fraud cases and have experience of freezing orders, search orders and other emergency relief. Hardwicke’s team also acknowledges the pressure that can be brought to bear by these orders and our members are equally versed in resisting attempts to obtain such relief.

We are able to deal with cases quickly and where urgent action is required, we can put together teams of barristers to work through large volumes of complex materials quickly and effectively. 

Our areas of work include: 

  • Breach of trust/misappropriation
  • Bribery
  • Cheque fraud
  • Conspiracy
  • Employee fraud
  • Misappropriation of company or client funds
  • Misuse of confidential information
  • International fraud

If you need any assistance in any of these areas, please contact a member of our Practice Management Team on +44 20 7242 2523 or e-mail practicemanagementteam@hardwicke.co.uk.
