Cyber Crime in UAE. Edmonds Marshall McMahon have extensive experience in conducting successful investigations and prosecutions of cybercrime cases in the UK, often in cross-border cases. We have a dedicated investigations team comprising former Serious Fraud Office investigators and detectives – they are well experienced in the unique challenges that result from companies and individuals being targeted by cybercrime.
The nature of cybercrime offences means that they often span multiple jurisdictions. Our team is experienced in identifying perpetrators from across the globe and advising on mutual legal assistance and extradition. 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 cybercrime cases often require 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 are innovative, technical, strategic and results-driven in our approach.
Cybercrime offences require a rapid response to minimise commercial and reputational loss to companies and individuals. A private prosecution enables victims to take swift and critical action against perpetrators. We work closely with our firm’s investigators to gather the best evidence to take cases forward. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to prosecutions and pride ourselves on our imaginative and strategic approach to cases, which yields exceptional results for our clients.
We commonly deal with the following:
- Cyber stalking, harassment and malicious communications;
- Cyber fraud and theft; and
- Data theft and Data Protection breaches by ex-employees or current employees.
Cybercrime investigations and prosecutions generate a vast amount of electronic material. At Edmonds Marshall McMahon, our team are experts on evidence gathering, e-disclosure and document review. We can provide a rapid and comprehensive service to the influx of data that is generated from cybercrime cases.
Following a successful and comprehensive investigation, we can privately prosecute offenders and advise on the benefits of applying for restraint and confiscation orders, including cryptocurrency and crypto-assets. We have significant experience in obtaining and robustly enforcing court orders on behalf of our clients.
