Charlotte Evans


Charlotte is experienced in advising individual and corporate clients across a broad range of practice areas, including criminal fraud, Serious Fraud Office (SFO) investigations, private prosecutions, INTERPOL and extradition matters, internal investigations, bribery offences and general crime.

Charlotte often advises clients facing investigation/action brought by UK and overseas enforcement agencies, including the UK’s SFO, Financial Conduct Authority, HM Revenue and Customs and the US Department of Justice (DOJ). She also has experience of advising on internal investigations, particularly where fraud or corruption are suspected and there is a risk of civil, criminal, or regulatory proceedings, as well as reputational/commercial risk.

Her private prosecution experience includes assisting the team that successfully prosecuted two individuals on behalf of Inkorporate Ltd, who were found guilty of fraud and money laundering offences in May 2022 following a lengthy investigation and prosecution by the Peters & Peters team.
