Business Crime & Financial Services

High value, complex fraud cases form a significant part of Fiona’s practise. She is instructed in private prosecutions as well as defending in cases brought by the CPS, HMRC and SFO.

Notable Cases:

R v M (2020)

Fiona secured the acquittal of a Spanish national accused of laundering the proceeds of a diversion fraud committed against the Ministry of Defence. The MoD computer network was manipulated by a corrupt clerk resulting in salaries for 55 personnel being diverted into mule accounts. The defendant received a significant proportion of these funds and, within 24 hours, it was sent to third party accounts, used to effect large foreign currency exchanges or withdrawn in cash.

R v C (2019)

Fiona represented an individual accused of involvement in a series of frauds valued at £10m and subsequent international money laundering operation. Virus and phishing software was used to perpetrate divert frauds companies and conveyancing solicitors and dating scams were used to target individuals. The money obtained was subsequently laundered through a series of shell companies and mule accounts across the Globe.

R v A (2017)

Fiona, led by Leon Kazakos QC, represented an individual accused of involvement in a £12m international fraud and money laundering operation. A series of divert frauds were perpetrated against public and quasi-public bodies following publication of tendering information. The diverted funds were subsequently laundered through accounts across the UK, UAE and Nigeria. In addition to the difficulties inherent in defending such large scale offending the case was rendered more complicated by the voluntary absence of the defendant who continued to provide instructions for trial remotely.

R v J (2018)

Representing a businessman accused of cheating the public revenue by evading VAT payments on the income from his business.
