ContactLeading CasesLatest News for Civil Fraud

We are regularly instructed in some of the most high-profile and cutting-edge civil fraud claims to come before the High Court. We have successfully pursued and defended claims valued in the hundreds of millions of pounds and we have managed serious and complex matters, often with multiple claims being pursued across different jurisdictions.

We specialise in tracing and recovering stolen or misappropriated funds or property. Clients value our ability to identify the key issues in a case quickly and to take the necessary steps to preserve assets without delay. The majority of our cases are international and we work closely with leading practitioners in many other jurisdictions to achieve outstanding results for our clients.

Peters & Peters is also renowned for acting for clients against whom serious allegations of fraud are made, and in particular where Freezing Injunctions & Search Orders have been obtained.

We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver a hands-on, pro-active service to claimants and defendants, both here and abroad with a strong focus on crisis-management throughout.

Due to our Business Crime team’s experience in international criminal and regulatory investigations, we are familiar with the issues which arise where civil fraud cases are running in tandem with criminal investigations and prosecutions (including where a claimant wishes to bring a private prosecution) and we are able to provide comprehensive and effective advice to defendants who may be subject to attention from prosecutors.
