Complex Fraud

NB: most lawyers will tell you that fraud is complex. This is not necessarily so. Despite the presence of large documentary trails that cloud many a mind, most fraud is simple at its core, and what is at issue is whether the prosecution can prove dishonesty.

Where it is prudent to do so, we practice ‘active defence’ in the client’s interest.

We possess the relevant resources and experience and to defend any fraud case in the country. Where necessary we co-ordinate forensic accountants, telephony and computer data analysts and any other experts needed to promote the client’s defence.
