serious fraud office investigations

The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) is a prosecuting body, separate to the Crown Prosecution Service, that investigates claims of serious or complex fraud. Those being investigated by the regulatory body require defence strategies based on specialist knowledge, made by keeping the best possible outcome in mind. The way people deal with SFO investigations can have a huge impact on its outcome, and cases often attract public attention, adding to the complexity of the situation.

Burton Copeland has the expertise to deal with the SFO, and its serious fraud defence lawyers can advise you through proceedings. To speak to a member of the team, you can either call us today on 0161 827 9500, or fill in our contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

how we can help

Although an SFO investigation may be similar to other investigations, prosecution is not as straightforward due to the nature of the offences being investigated, which is why specialist advice is required as soon as possible. Our defence team can help you:

  • Respond to document production notices
  • Complete self reports for the SFO
  • Enter a deferred prosecution agreement (DPA)
  • Respond to search warrants and raids
  • Provide advice and representation at hearings
