Private Prosecution in UAE

Private Prosecution 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 beyond. 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.

We also have leading civil fraud and trust practitioners who are recognised internationally as at the forefront of civil fraud, trust and asset tracing work. Alongside criminal proceedings, civil litigation offers powerful remedies to locate, freeze and retrieve assets from fraudsters and those to whom they have transferred the proceeds of fraud. These can include worldwide freezing injunctions, entitling a claimant’s legal team to search premises and IT systems for evidence that is at risk of being improperly destroyed or tampered with. We undertake civil fraud, trust and asset tracing work and collaborate with other specialist firms where this is in our client’s best interests.

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.

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.
