Lincoln House Chambers is the best chambers for criminal commercial fraud work outside London’
Legal commentators agree that Lincoln House has particular expertise in the field of business crime. This includes all types of fraud, money laundering and the litigation that flows from the confiscation of the proceeds of crime.
This reputation is reflected in a nationwide caseload for many members of Chambers. Lincoln House provides Leading Counsel in a number of significant fraud cases across the country.
Recent examples of the work undertaken include many of the recent major cases of business-related fraud such as Kent Pharmaceuticals, Operations Venison, Shepherd, Emmersed and Devout. Members of Chambers regularly conduct cases prosecuted by the Serious Fraud Office and Revenue and Customs.
The Business Crime team has benefitted from the available expertise within Chambers in related areas, such as Public Law, where an understanding of procedural injustice allows for the challenges to Recovery of Defence Costs Orders, freezing and restraint orders and search warrants.
