Business Crime & Financial Services

Craig is routinely instructed in serious and complex fraud cases both for corporate and individual professional clients. He has experience in investigations involving allegations of criminal cartel offences, bribery (UK and overseas), boiler room frauds, banking fraud, general VAT offences, MTIC and carousel fraud cases, tax offences and money laundering.

He has also been instructed in a number of major VAT Tribunal cases before the First Tier and Upper Tribunals. He is frequently instructed to provide advice in relation to investigations prior to charge and is experienced in dealing with ancillary proceedings, such as restraint and confiscation.

Craig has most recently represented the Operations Manager of a business accused of fraud by abuse his position in order to steal large sums of money over an extended period of time. Following detailed submissions over non-disclosure, the Prosecution was ordered to pay a substantial proportion of his wasted costs and then offered no evidence on all charges.

He was a contributor to the CBA’s response to the Law Commission in respect of the review of the law relating to fraud and dishonesty.
