As a niche firm of lawyers dedicated to professional crime and regulatory law, we are experts in serious fraud and bribery & corruption cases.
We have successfully defended professional individuals and corporations accused of the most serious and complex of bribery and corruption cases whether at the stage of investigation by the Serious Fraud Office or in prosecution by the Crown Prosecution Service.
The Bribery Act 2010, s7 created a new statutory offence in UK law meaning commercial organisations can be held responsible for failing to prevent persons associated with them from bribing another person to obtain or retain business or an advantage in the conduct of said business. Section 7 is an indictable offence and the penalty for a conviction is a fine. We appreciate, however, that the effect of such a charge or conviction can be extremely damaging to your business.
At Precedence Law, we are highly experienced in dealing with high profile cases, handling any press attention and ensuring the utmost discretion and confidentiality for cases that are played out in the public eye.

We offer a service that is not standard. We utilise our extensive legal knowledge, vast experience and solid commitment to each client and each individual case to make sure we have explored and investigated all ways of derailing the case against you.
In R v Anthony France 2016, we successfully created an expert legal team to have a conviction overturned at the Court of Appeal. Anthony France was convicted of aiding misconduct in a public office following the five-year high profile investigation into payments for stories, Operation Elveden.
