"Highly experienced in fraud"

Legal 500 [2022]

Mountford Chambers is home to a team of specialist business crime and fraud barristers who are recognised in both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners for their notable expertise.

Members appear in a wide-range of corporate crime cases, from stock market to banking fraud, to cases involving allegations of bribery and corruption.

Highly experienced in fraud” Legal 500 [2022], “Members are regularly instructed to represent their clients in SFO, FCA and HMRC investigations, and count several bankers, accountants and brokers among their enviable client base” Chambers & Partners [2020].

Mountford barristers attach great importance to offering a continuity of service – a service which begins in the first days of investigation and gives  clients the confidence of knowing that they have access to expert support and advice at all times – and the highest level of representation in any court proceedings.

Known for being motivated, hard-working and technically skilled, our barristers are also adept strategists, able to plan ahead to deliver the very best advice and representation in these often high-stake proceedings.

Members are routinely engaged at the pre-charge stage of proceedings to provide tactical advice to solicitors and clients with a view to halting proceedings before they have opportunity to imbed.
