White collar crime

White collar crime is often defined as an abuse of a legitimate occupational role, which is regulated by law.

As the face of crime continues to change, the ways in which crimes are investigated, prosecuted and defended also continue to evolve. Aubrey Solicitors have the experience and understanding of the commercial realities for professional clients to advise on such cases; from preventative measures, such as advice on compliance and procedure, to representation at all levels and before all tribunals.

Penalties can be high. The earlier you seek advice, the easier it is for us to limit the damage to your business, career, reputation, and your family.

  • Asset Forfeiture
  • Cartels
  • Corporate Fraud
  • Environmental Regulatory Law
