How Ashmans Solicitors Can Help You
Using our highly skilled criminal fraud and financial crime defence team, dedicated and experienced solicitors and caseworkers – along with highly respected barristers, we will start building your defence as soon as you instruct us to.
We also have excellent relationships with nationally recognised defence forensic accountants, computer data analysts and handwriting experts. We will use these experts to help us build your defence and ensure that no stone is left unturned.
Often in complex fraud and other complex criminal matters, attempts are made by the Prosecution to request a Restraining Order on an individual and/or their business. This can happen even if you have not yet been charged with an offence. In some cases, charges may not be brought for months or even years; this lengthy wait can have a devastating effect on you, your family and your business.
Ashmans Solicitors take a hands-on, proactive stance; we never wait for the Prosecution to build their case first, we will build our own case, fastidiously, tirelessly and precisely.
We recognise that complex crime involves huge amounts of evidence, technical and forensic data and a multitude of Defendants. Our dedicated complex crime team has the expertise to effectively sort through the evidence in order to prepare a solid defence case.
Confidentiality is of paramount importance to Ashmans Solicitors; we know that rumours can damage business and personal reputations, sometimes leading to catastrophic consequences. That is why we keep a strict confidentiality code at all times.
