Defence Against Charity Fraud Allegations

Have you been accused of committing charity fraud? If so, our specialist team of solicitors is here to offer the guidance you need. We can help if you are an employee or trustee of the charity, or if you normally have no dealings with the charity but have been charged with committing external fraud against it.

With years of experience working on cases of this kind, we know that seeking legal advice in the early stages of an investigation can make a big difference to the outcome of your case. Therefore, it is essential to get help from the experts, ensuring you are well defended against your charges. Call us on 0800 652 5559 or fill in our online enquiry form and we will get back to you.
