Criminal Defence


Arrange a meeting

Fraud cases cover a wide range of allegations, from a small welfare benefit overpayment to a multi-million pound money-laundering case. The more complex cases can carry serious consequences, with the personal and professional lives of the individuals involved being severely damaged.

Fraud Investigations

Our criminal defence team is highly experienced in complex financial and corporate investigations, civil fraud litigation as well as criminal prosecutions. We are accredited by the Legal Aid Agency to conduct the very highest cost criminal cases (also called VHCCs), a status held by only a few criminal practices in the country.

Fraud investigations are not only complex, but can be extremely drawn-out. Complex fraud allegations require analysis of thousands of pages of documentation and financial statements and so the legal team working on the case will need to be highly experienced as well as technically exceptional lawyers. Our lawyers are highly skilled in this area, and also work effectively alongside other experts when needed in order to help put forward the strongest possible case for you.

As well as handling your case with professionalism and the attention to detail you would expect when dealing with cases of this nature, we also understand the impact on our clients’ personal lives. We understand that dealing with cases of fraud, while technical, still involve emotions and we believe it is our job to minimise the risk to your reputation, as well as secure the best possible outcome.

If you need help from an expert and would like to talk to someone in confidence about your options, contact Gerard Maye or call 01273 916000.

  • A massive thank you for the help with my case. I was very impressed with your firm and cannot thank you enough for the honest advice and help that bought my case to a conclusion with the best possible outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others in need of a top legal defence team. I now have my life back thanks to Gerard Maye and his professional colleagues.

    N.G, Brighton

  • I have used Gerard Maye Legal on a number of occasions over the past 10 years and cannot thank them enough for the impeccable professional service that they provide every time. Without the support of Gerard Maye and his fantastic team, my family and I would have struggled to cope with what has been an immensely stressful time and emotional time. I would never risk my future by going anywhere else for legal representation.
