Top Fraud Law Firm in Sydney
Our New South Wales Criminal Law team includes solicitors who are highly experienced and well versed in representing clients who have been charged with fraud matters. This includes offences such as obtaining benefit by deception, Centrelink fraud, embezzlement, dealing in proceeds of crime, dealing in property reasonably suspected to be the proceeds of crime, destroying or concealing accounting records, providing false or misleading statements, and deceiving creditors by making false or misleading statements.
A criminal conviction for fraud offences is particularly frowned upon by most professions as these offences involve elements of dishonesty and deception. There is often a lot at stake for a person charged with these offences, not only because most fraud offences carry maximum penalties including imprisonment, but because the offence may affect a person’s current or future prospect of employment. Regulatory bodies such as the Australian Securities & Investments Commission, Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency or the New South wales Law Society may revoke registration or prohibit individuals from practicing because of a fraud or fraud related offence on their criminal record.
It is also not uncommon for fraud offences to attract the attention of the Australian or NSW Crime Commission which may take legal action to freeze assets or seek their confiscation or forfeiture in connection with a criminal prosecution for a fraud or fraud related offence.
Get Urgent Advice
It is important that any person who is the subject of a current investigation or has been charged with a criminal offence ensures that they receive proper and timely legal advice. It is critical they are well aware of their options with respect to whether or not to speak to organisations, investigative bodies or police and may allow persons to avoid incriminating themselves. Our legal representatives ensure they understand all potential ramifications from the fraud offence, as well as the bigger picture with respect to how such may affect assets, employment, and dependants.
Our Sydney fraud lawyers regularly provide legal advice in such matters, along with advice about the court processes involved in the Local Court and or the District Court. They have appeared for clients charged with fraud-related offences prosecuted by both the New South Wales Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Commonwealth Office of Public Prosecution. They are also competent in dealings with the Australian and NSW Crime Commissions.
While all our lawyers’ practices will include fraud offences from time to time, the below members of our team have particular experience in fraud.
