Peters & Peters acted for the former Managing Director of a global security and protection company
Tuesday 10 November, 2015
Peters & Peters represented a Managing Director of a global security company, who pleaded guilty to fraud on her former employer, to the value of just under £100,000. An early guilty plea and detailed representations on mitigating factors resulted in the imposition of a suspended sentence of imprisonment.
A confidential settlement was negotiated with the company in order to avoid any freezing injunctions or civil proceedings and the associated publicity. Whilst the value of the claim was small, the value to the client in terms of reputation was significant.
