About Us

Rahman Ravelli was founded in 2001. It has become one of the fastest-growing and most highly- regarded legal practices specialising in the defence of serious fraud, regulatory matters, complex crime and commercial litigation.

Business Crime, Financial Regulation and Complex Crime

Whether the case is national, international or involves one or more prosecuting agencies, we strive to provide the strongest, most pro-active defence possible for our clients. We create a bespoke legal team for each client and tailor a defence strategy for each case that addresses every single issue raised by the authorities.

Our hard work, experience and expertise have seen our reputation rise, thanks in part to a large number of high-profile successes. We have achieved notable victories for clients in some of the UK’s biggest fraud trials and our track record of success has helped us gain prominence in worldwide legal circles; where we have become noted for our international co-ordination of defence cases in prosecutions spanning a variety of countries and prosecuting agencies.

Rahman Ravelli has also helped shape the law. We have taken cases to the Supreme Court and have even sought leave to appeal to the European Court in a bid to resolve issues on behalf of our clients. Rahman Ravelli took the case of R V H and C to the House of Lords - the landmark case that refined the law in relation to the prosecution’s duty to disclose evidence.

Our reputation has led to us being sought out to handle all manner of massively important matters for clients; from legal compliance for major PLC’s through to representation of those implicated in high profile investigations.

We know that the modern criminal case is not merely decided on eye witness testimony. Issues such as admissibility of evidence, prosecution’s disclosure of evidence and in-depth knowledge of how prosecuting agencies function can all be crucial factors in mounting the very best defence.

That is why all our criminal lawyers know the very latest legal developments and have experience in defending the most complex and serious cases. Our reputation means that we can instruct the most able Counsel to conduct trials. We only ever appoint Counsel, Queen's Counsel and experts who have passed our vigorous vetting procedures.

Rahman Ravelli routinely deals with large, high profile cases and is experienced in dealing with criminal matters all the way to the highest national and international courts.

Commercial services

Our expanding commercial litigation department has become the first stop for many individuals and businesses looking for expertise when it comes to civil fraud, fraud, regulatory, privileged or commercial investigations, dispute resolution, forensic services, anti-bribery or money laundering procedures, compliance, risk management or representation at official inquiries and hearings.

Reputation

As our Reputation section shows, Rahman Ravelli lawyers are regarded as experts in their fields, gaining enviable entries in the most prestigious legal guides.

Our dedication, our expertise and the track record of success that has resulted are recognised by all parts of the legal world.

We are available 365 days a year, 24 hours a day to provide expert advice and assistance to our clients, wherever they are and whatever issues they are facing.
