Practice Areas

Aziz Rahman’s in-depth expertise and experience have led to a growing national and international caseload that includes the most notable global corruption investigations and a reputation for top-class, intelligent defence work.

He has a client list of major corporations, professionals and high net worth individuals. His widely-recognised gift for assembling, coordinating and strategically directing brilliant defence teams in serious and corporate fraud, complex crime, bribery and corruption and compliance and regulatory matters has brought repeated success. This has led to his emergence as one of the UK’s most significant legal practitioners in his field and a string of award nominations. He is also recognised as one of the most accomplished litigators in major, high-value commercial disputes.

He is in increasing demand from clients wishing to carry out internal corporate investigations to identify wrongdoing and self-report to the authorities. This demand has risen sharply since the UK introduction of deferred prosecution agreements; of which he already has extensive experience. He has proved himself one of the UK’s most adept, tactical and determined solicitors when it comes to achieving an outcome other than a criminal prosecution. His robust defence skills, swift analysis of complex issues and ability to identify the best course of action in the most complicated international and multi-jurisdictional cases have led to a lengthening record of achievement in cases involving all manner of businesses and professions.

Aziz Rahman’s work involves regular dealings with the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the National Crime Agency (NCA), City of London Police, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), international bodies such as the FBI, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), OLAF and Interpol and police and anti-corruption agencies around the world. His huge experience of such agencies has made him a logical choice for individuals and corporates facing a national, international or multi-agency investigation.

His firm, which he founded in 2001, was the first to lodge an appeal with the European Court of Human Rights to challenge the civil burden of proof in civil recovery cases.

Career

Admitted in 1999, he established Rahman Ravelli in 2001.

Professional Memberships

Specialist Fraud Panel, Fraud Advisory Panel, Financial Services Lawyers Association (FSLA), Fraud Lawyers Association (FLA), International Bar Association (IBA), American Bar Association (ABA), Proceeds of Crime Lawyers Association (POCLA), and BLD.

Publications

He is an orator and an avid essayist on all matters related to his areas of expertise. His articles regularly feature in legal, business and commercial publications.

Personal

He is a keen diver, a passionate reader and enjoys boxing, music and travel.
