Fraud and financial crime
We have one of the largest and mostly highly regarded fraud teams in Scotland. We act for victims of fraud, in Scotland and as part of an international network, who need to move quickly to trace and freeze funds, and raise proceedings to make a successful recovery.
Proof of our expertise is that we have attracted clients with the calibre of the Scottish Ministers' Civil Recovery Unit and the National Crime Agency. We have particular expertise in cases brought under the Proceeds of Crime Act
Our lawyers are plain speaking and pragmatic with advice being delivered in clear and practical terms. Our lawyers are experts in moving swiftly to freeze assets following a fraud, which is essential to avoid dissipation and to maximise the chances of making a recovery.
Benefits we bring
Our lead partner, Douglas Milne, is the Scottish member of the International Chamber of Commerce's Fraudnet, an organisation of the world's leading fraud and asset recovery lawyers. Membership of Fraudnet allows us to respond quickly - and across international borders - for victims when they are seeking to freeze and recover monies of which they have been defrauded.

Our approach to fees
We understand it's important you know the cost of legal advice at the outset of a piece of work. We will seek to agree fixed fees for the work that we will undertake for you. If it is not possible to provide a fixed fee for a particular piece of work, we will provide a clear indication of the likely fee to be charged based upon an agreed scope of work.
