Business Crime in UAE

Business Crime in UAE. Edmonds Marshall McMahon is a unique firm of attorneys (known in the UK as solicitors and barristers) with an unrivalled track record in conducting major fraud prosecutions and regulatory work in the UK, UAE and elsewhere. The three founding partners have a combined total of 70 years’ experience in criminal justice and the firm offers a novel service to victims of crime – that is, of course, the ability to bring a private prosecution.

While we privately prosecute the full range of offences under the criminal law, we have particular expertise in fraud, corporate dishonesty and financial crime. Our global lawyers have substantial experience advising on high-value, complex, cross-border fraud and white-collar crime. Alongside our attorneys, we have a dedicated investigations team comprising former government investigators and detectives from the police force. We work closely with our firm’s investigators to gather the best evidence to take cases forward.

We have extensive experience from some of the UK’s leading bribery cases – these include the prosecution of Innospec Ltd and the investigation of Rolls-Royce PLC, which led to a record-breaking Deferred Prosecution Agreement between the manufacturer and Serious Fraud Office in 2017. Our work in this area has also led to us being instructed by foreign governments to assist in their fight against corruption within the public sector. Therefore, we now have a wealth of experience in complex, multi-jurisdictional, anti-corruption prosecutions.

Our clients in the UAE benefit from our global reach and access to specialists, including investigators and forensic accountants, in various jurisdictions. We understand that fraud often requires a tailored international strategy and our knowledge of local jurisdictions, including the UAE, allows us to take fast effective action on behalf of our clients. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to prosecuting offences and pride ourselves on our imaginative approach to cases, which yields exceptional results for our clients.
