One80’s forensic accounting team regularly act as expert witness or advisor in matters arising from allegations of fraud and other wrongdoing

Fraud and Financial Crime Advisory

We recognise that fraud cases often require complex financial issues to be explained in an easily comprehensible manner and our experts’ extensive witness box experience means that they are comfortable explaining issues to Judges or Juries, as required.

Our experience in civil fraud matters includes cases which require us to investigate and comment on allegations of fraud as well as to trace assets both for general litigation proceedings as well as for freezing orders and restraint proceedings.

We have a deep understanding of the intricacies of criminal work and are frequently instructed on complex financial issues arising during substantive proceedings, including but not limited to money laundering, fraudulent trading, and theft.


We have acted in numerous fraud matters, including:

  • corporate frauds
  • employee frauds
  • private criminal prosecutions
  • frauds against Government bodies
  • money laundering

Our experts have been instructed to prepare expert witness reports on behalf of prosecuting bodies in both the UK and overseas.

Our team also has extensive experience in acting for defendants in criminal matters prosecuted by bodies including the SFO, the FCA, the CPS and HMRC.


We understand there may be cost constraints when acting for defendants and always seek to undertake work in an efficient and commercial manner as well as being willing to consider accepting instructions in publicly funded matters.
