Nick Cassidy, a consultant solicitor in our Criminal Department, has recently represented a financial professional in relation to a complex fraud allegation involving a nationwide conspiracy.


After a lengthy investigation stage lasting almost two years, the Crown Prosecution Service and the police confirmed that there is no further action to be taken against our client. Nick Cassidy explains: “The police investigation stage is the most important part of a case. Despite popular belief, if you can engage with the police and make representations in relation to enquiries and potential lines of enquiries, many officers will be happy to consider all angles and ultimately it may prevent a case from proceeding to court. The case involved alleged offenders making fraudulent commission claims in a complex and organised scheme. I am delighted that we secured confirmation the case is now concluded and our client has peace of mind.”


At DRN, police station attendances are covered under our firm’s contract with the Legal Aid Agency, however more complex attendances can be covered on a private fee paying basis. If you are a professional facing a police or regulatory investigation, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team at DRN and we will be happy to discuss your needs.
