The police and prosecution have to prove that you planned to commit fraud. If they can’t, the law says you're not guilty.
Our conspiracy to defraud solicitors know the law better and investigate the facts more thoroughly to find out what was really going on. This means we get charges dropped and we win cases.
You don't have to despair if you face a conspiracy to defraud case. Get the right support and the right legal team and you can get through it.
Facing a fraud conspiracy case can be immediately terrifying. They are big investigations and big court cases. Shock is often the first reaction, followed by fear.
These cases often involve large amounts of money and people feel worried about the possibility of prison and damage to their career or reputation. Often the worry is about family members who may be affected.
The whole thing can be daunting. Fraud seems complex and even the word 'conspiracy' sounds scary. Most people have never thought they might one day be interviewed or appear in court for a fraud offence. To make it worse, conspiracy (or planning with other people to commit fraud) is among the most serious of fraud offences.
Lack of experience makes these cases even harder to deal with. If you haven't been there before, you're less likely to know what steps to take. The unknown can make a tough situation seem unmanageable.
All of this is made worse because you can end up in a fraud conspiracy case just by knowing other people. This feels like being punished for friendships or work relationships, which is of course unfair. Sometimes even family members are investigated. This can cause huge undue stress.
Prosecutors often wrongly assume that anyone near to an organisation must have known and taken part in any criminal behaviour going on. They sometimes assume that if a person signed documents or seen emails then they must be guilty. This is plain wrong, but it can mean that innocent people end up in court.
People are sometimes accused of conspiracy to defraud after years of professional service. It can seem very harsh for investigators to attack a reputation so casually.
These cases involve masses of evidence, the law is complex, and sentences can be long. Without help from specialist conspiracy to defraud lawyers this can all make the situation seem overwhelming.
A conspiracy to defraud investigation doesn't need to ruin your life. There is a way through.
Having the right fraud lawyers who are experienced in conspiracy cases can get things moving in a better direction. You'll feel more confident and less helpless against the police or prosecution.
The first thing a good legal team will do is explain to you what's going on, and what you should expect. Your questions being answered is an important step to dealing with the problem. Lawyers will listen to you to understand your place in all this. They will find out what you need to happen so that they can put together the right strategy to reach that.
Properly skilled conspiracy to defraud lawyers will demand all the available evidence from the other side so you know what you're dealing with. Then steps can begin to fight back.

Don't give up hope. Being investigated or even being charged isn't the same as being convicted.
Don't assume that the duty or local solicitor has the experience and skill to represent you for conspiracy to defraud, and do research. These cases aren't general criminal law and require a specialist.
Don't try to transfer property or assets to protect them. It doesn't work and it is against the law.
Keep all your emails and text messages, and business records and organise them. They could be useful in your defence.
Don't communicate about the case with other suspects or potential suspects, especially in any kind of written message.
Don't underestimate the work you will have to do to defend yourself. Your chances will be better if you face the problem and put the hours in with your lawyers.
