Edmonds Marshall McMahon is the first and only specialist private prosecution firm in the UK. The firm’s experience, expertise and contacts in the criminal justice system are unrivalled. Edmonds Marshall McMahon prosecutes a wide range of offences, and advises Governments, companies, charities, individuals and NGO's with fraud, corruption and complex criminal issues, supervising investigations, and assisting law enforcement both nationally and internationally.
The firm’s success thus far has been created by a private, high-powered team of senior prosecutors with an unrivalled track record in conducting major fraud prosecutions and regulatory work. The criminal side of the firm is staffed by highly experienced prosecutors and investigators and offers tailor-made prosecution services, from advice and investigation through to criminal proceedings and confiscation and enforcement.
In 2015, the firm decided that the best course of action for victims would be to have all possible legal options under one roof. In 2016, EMM created its civil fraud team. The firm is now, more so than any other firm in the UK, able to provide a total solution to fraud: the firm can advise clients on the best means of retrieving assets in frauds that are linked to the UK, whether by civil asset retrieval or criminal confiscation order and conduct specialist investigations in-house.
PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK:
Since inception, Edmonds Marshall McMahon’s focus has been on assisting companies or individuals that have been the victims of complex fraud. The firm assists in either recovering money or privately prosecuting and deterring fraudsters. The firm commonly deals with fraud in joint venture contracts; fraud in commercial contracts with banks and financial institutions; theft, fraud, dishonesty or money laundering; loan, insurance and mortgage fraud; data theft by employees and internal fraud.
Bribery & Corruption:
Edmonds Marshall McMahon has one of the largest dual investigative and prosecutorial teams in a private firm in the UK. Many of its members are former senior SFO investigators and prosecutors who undertake corruption investigations all around the world on behalf of clients, including for States.
The increase in counterfeiting has staggering financial implications for businesses; all companies with a brand to protect must seriously consider this growing market. Edmonds Marshall McMahon’s unique service means the firm will investigate (or work with investigators), advise, prosecute and robustly enforce any compensation and/or confiscation order for its clients, ensuring compensation for them.
Advisory & Regulatory:
All directors of Edmonds Marshall McMahon have extensive experience in the area of regulatory law, having advised and prosecuted for the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), Department for Food, Environment and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Environment Agency. The firm has also advised pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers on the medicines and medical devices licensing regime. The background of the firm’s directors and senior lawyers enables the firm to give comprehensive, commercial and relevant advice.
Civil Fraud Litigation:
In some cases of fraud and breach of trust it may be more appropriate for clients to choose civil litigation, particularly where a criminal prosecution may prove more difficult due to difficulties in establishing particular offences. Civil proceedings are designed to effect a recovery and many of the firm’s clients will regard this as reflective of their overall objective. The firm can now offer an unrivalled service in both criminal and civil fraud proceedings.
