Directors Fraud in UAE. Edmonds Marshall McMahon are experts in conducting fraud prosecutions. We are a unique firm, staffed by attorneys and investigators, and have significant experience in ensuring that victims of fraud, in the UAE and elsewhere, are compensated and that defendants are denied the proceeds of their crime.
We commonly advise on theft and dishonesty in relation to directors and other professionals who have abused their position. Director fraud takes many forms, including when a director makes false or misleading statements and as a result of these the company, its shareholders or its creditors suffer detriment.
Directors fraud is part of a wider crisis across the globe. By way of example, in January 2021, the Royal United Services Institute (“RUSI”), a defence and security think tank, published a paper explaining that fraud in the UK has reached epidemic levels. According to this paper, fraud is the “volume crime of our time”. There is certainly increased media attention around the issue – for example, shortly after the RUSI paper was published, the BBC reported that the UK’s fraud epidemic is now a “national security threat”. Notwithstanding greater awareness of this world-wide problem, the response of governments across the globe continues to fail individuals and businesses. Traditional law enforcement agencies are still failing to prioritise fraud offences, even as reports continue to rise. This state of affairs is at the heart of Edmonds Marshall McMahon’s mission – as private prosecutors, we specialise in providing fraud victims with access to justice.
