Conspiracy To Defraud

Defence of finance director

In a Serious Fraud Office prosecution, several directors of a group of companies engaged in the selling and administration of buy-to-let properties were charged with conspiracy to defraud.

We acted for the defence on behalf of the finance director. Through detailed investigations, drafting a report and discussions in conference with counsel, we were able to provide input on a number of key issues, including the accounting implications of refurbishment provisions, adequacy and reliability of accounting records and accounts, the financial effects of a group restructuring, and solvency.

A plea bargain was achieved, and a lengthy prison sentence avoided.
