Conspiracy to Defraud Defence
If you are part of a group that is facing charges of conspiracy to defraud, JMW can help you build a robust, successful defence. Our solicitors not only have the relevant expertise, but also the experience of handling many different conspiracy to defraud cases, each with their own specific challenges.
Cases of this type can be highly complex and can involve many different defendants; our team has the skill and know-how to ensure you are best protected against any decisions made by your fellow defendants. Get in touch today by calling 0800 652 5559 or by filling in our online enquiry form.
Our conspiracy to defraud defence solicitors have handled many cases in which there have been over a dozen defendants and evidence has been presented in court over lengthy periods of time. When cases last for months at a time, information management is absolutely key - a solicitor needs to keep track of every detail covered, as the smallest point could make all the difference to an outcome.
Data management is a key area of expertise for us. We work with leading experts in the electronic presentation of evidence, ensuring important facts in a case are presented clearly and precisely.
Conspiracy to defraud can be a particularly complex area of law, and often a source of some confusion. It is therefore important to seek legal assistance from specialist solicitors with a deep understanding of this topic and experience in building successful defences against conspiracy to defraud, such as the team at JMW.
There are two different types of conspiracy to defraud:
- Conspiracy to expose a person to loss or risk - This involves an agreement between two or more people that would result in someone being dishonestly deprived of something to which they are entitled
- Conspiracy to deceive a person who is in a position of responsibility - This involves an agreement to defraud someone by deceiving them into taking action that is against their duty (an employee, for example)
Because a charge of conspiracy to defraud only requires knowledge between the parties involved that their agreed actions will lead to an intended victim being defrauded, and does not require that the agreed acts are actually committed, such rulings can be complicated and successful defences can be built with the help of an experienced legal team.
Why Choose JMW?
Conspiracy to defraud is defined as an agreement between two or more people to commit an unlawful act, and it must be proven that the intent to commit the act was present. At JMW, we have great experience in disproving this and in helping clients in the most complex of cases, often involving many different defendants and lasting for long periods of time.
In cases where there are co-defendants, it is absolutely essential to work thoroughly. Decisions made by different defendants can impact an entire action; at JMW we believe our ability to anticipate those decisions and protect a client against any potentially adverse effects really sets us apart from other solicitors.
If you are facing allegations of conspiracy to defraud, we will be happy to have a no-obligation discussion about your situation to demonstrate how our skills and expertise can help you win your case. We are able to help individuals and businesses throughout the UK, including in Manchester and London.
