If you, your business, or one of your employees is facing a criminal investigation or prosecution, our partnering business crime solicitors can help.
Criminal investigations can be highly disruptive and damaging for everyone involved, whatever the outcome. Fix My Company Ltd work in partnership with specialist lawyers whom can help you minimise the impact on your life, your reputation and your business operations.
If an investigation is already underway, we’ll walk you through the entire process and explain what you need to do at every stage. We’ll examine all your options and present a clear plan to protect your interests. If the investigation becomes a prosecution, we can defend you in court too.
We can also help before an investigation even begins. We’ll help you understand your legal obligations and identify potential issues that could come up in the future. You’ll get a pragmatic plan that will save your business significant time and resources at crucial moments.
We can advise and represent you if you are being investigated or prosecuted for:
Bribery or corruption
Insider dealing or market abuse
Trading standards breaches
Asset forfeiture and seizure
- Road traffic offences
- Financial Services and Markets Act (FSMA) offences, such as providing regulated services without authorisation or failing to meet governance standards
- Money laundering and related Proceeds of Crime Act offences
Your business may be criminally liable too if it has failed to prevent bribery, tax evasion, money laundering and other crimes being committed by an employee. We can advise and represent your business through these investigations as well. We can also help your business develop policies and procedures to help prevent crimes taking place and report them if they do.
You’ll get advice on risk assessments, due diligence, auditing and monitoring. We’ll train your staff on their obligations under the UK Bribery Act, Criminal Finances Act, and Anti Money Laundering legislation. It’s impossible to totally avoid the risk of investigations, so we also advise businesses on how to prepare for them. With a thorough plan in place, you can minimise any disruption to your business and damage to your reputation.
Your criminal liability and the legislation you must follow depends on which sector you work in. We work with solicitors who have experience across all major sectors, so you’ll always work with someone that understands your specific business needs.
We can help if you are being investigated or prosecuted by:
Serious Fraud Office (SFO)
Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC)
The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS)
