Bribery and Corruption

Most cases of bribery and corruption are investigated by the Serious Fraud Office. The sentences for crimes of this nature can be severe – those found guilty are at risk of prison sentences of up to a decade, as well as hefty fines.

If you have been charged or arrested for such offences, or you or your business is under suspicion, it is vital you seek specialist legal help as soon as possible. Here at JMW Solicitors we have a specialist business crime department and a legal team with the experience and knowledge needed to fight your corner.

Bribery and corruption defined

Bribery and corruption are umbrella terms which cover a variety of different crimes, including such things as:

  • Extortion (when someone demands cash payment or other assets and threatens harm if their demands are not met)
  • Kickbacks (when an official figure demands a portion of the value of a contract as a bribe)
  • Corporate espionage (theft of trade secrets and intellectual property)
  • Illegal gratuities (giving or receiving payback after a business transaction)

These activities are investigated by the Serious Fraud Office and our specialist solicitors have the working background and legal knowledge required to deal with charges brought by the body.

Bribery and corruption charges are very serious and if you’ve been accused or charged with an offence of this kind it’s essential to have the right legal representation from the very beginning.
