Winner of the Legal 500 - 'Criminal, Fraud & Licensing Law Firm of the Year 2019'
Computer & Cyber Crime, Internet & Copyright Fraud Solicitor
Alleged criminal activity takes place where a computer or network is the source, tool, target, or place of a crime. Offences of this type can broadly be defined as criminal activity involving an information technology infrastructure, including illegal access, illegal interception, data interference, systems interference, misuse of devices, forgery (ID theft), electronic fraud together with trademark and copyright infringements.
Criminal offences can be prosecuted under the Computer Misuse Act but also if the offending relates to fraudulent or dishonest activity other fraud or money laundering based offences may be charged. Offences contrary to the Trademarks Act, Copyright, Designs and Patent Act and the Fraud Act are brought more and more by not only the Police but private organisations who represent the film, games and music industry. Organisations such as FACT, FAST, ELSPA and the BPI together with companies such as Microsoft and Virgin Media often commence private prosecutions against individuals.
Our specialist team can handle a large volume of computer-based evidence and we have the infrastructure to digest and analyse complex computer-based material. Where necessary, we will instruct and work closely with forensic IT technology experts. If you are facing investigation or prosecution for computer or internet fraud you need to ensure that your legal team can deal with the complicated issues of fact, law and technical IT expertise to present your case in the best possible light.
As criminal defence solicitors we regularly defend such cases in the Magistrates’ Court, Crown Court and Court of Appeal.
We understand that investigations can commence at any time so we are available and accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to deal with urgent requests to defend and represent client interests.
It is a top-notch firm with strength and depth
