Award-winning business crime practice Rahman Ravelli has appointed Ben Ticehurst to its corporate fraud operation.
The Tier 1 Legal 500 and Band 1 Chambers Legal Guide firm has taken on Ticehurst to work in its London-based Corporate Fraud Department.
Rahman Ravelli, which also has bases in Halifax and Birmingham, believes his appointment will ensure the continued expansion of its corporate fraud caseload at a time when the firm is gaining increased recognition. It has won a string of awards in the last three months as well as receiving its third straight Tier 1 ranking for fraud in The Legal 500.
The firm’s corporate workload is increasing as its profile continues to rise among CEO’s, senior executives and board members across the business and professional spectrum. It believes the appointment of Ticehurst will further boost its ability to offer the strongest, most informed range of corporate services to clients.
Aziz Rahman, Rahman Ravelli founder, said Ticehurst had been taken on as an associate solicitor following close scrutiny of his track record. He has been noted as a leading lawyer in The Legal 500, Chambers and Super Lawyers guides and arrives at Rahman Ravelli having handled major corporate fraud cases at another leading City firm.
He added: “Ben has a background in corporate fraud. We were attracted to him as we believe his experience, expertise and contacts can help the continued expansion of our Corporate Fraud Department.“
He has a track record of representing corporates and those who operate at the very top levels of business. This is an area in which our staff excel so it made perfect sense to bring Ben in to further develop what is, for us, an increasingly important area of work.
“We are recognised as being extremely adept at assisting corporates and senior executives when it comes to white collar crime, the bringing of private prosecutions or any other legal challenge faced by those at the highest levels of business.
“Bringing Ben to Rahman Ravelli further enhances our ability to help anyone who has any type of business crime-related problem.’’
