Fraud allegations can be damaging to a company and an individual. Immediate and appropriate action has to be taken once a problem becomes apparent. The right legal expertise is essential.

Rahman Ravelli provides that expertise to protect your rights and your business. We make sure that every client suffers the minimum of stress and discomfort and is kept fully informed of all developments.

We regularly receive instructions on serious cases alleging anything from multi-million-pound fraud, money laundering and tax fraud through to mortgage and property fraud, investment fraud and boiler room operations.

By tailoring a legal team to each client, using our extensive experience of dealing with national and international investigating agencies and analysing evidence, we are able to handle every case carefully and tactically. Our skill, persistence and negotiating abilities make us the logical choice for a client who wants to achieve the best possible outcome.

Our track record in global and high-profile cases shows that we obtain the highest levels of success for those we represent; no matter how determined the prosecuting agencies are to gain a conviction. Our work on some of the world’s major corruption cases has earned us an enviable reputation and associations with some of the most highly-regarded legal practices around the globe.

And that track record covers all types of fraud cases.
