Criminal Fraud

Farrar’s Building has a very strong presence in serious crime work. Four silks, Patrick Harrington QC, Paul Lewis QC, Christopher Quinlan QC, and Ian Unsworth QC are regularly instructed in some of the heaviest cases.

Members of Chambers fraud barristers team prosecute for the SFO, HMRC and CPS Special Casework Division, as well as many major cases for each CPS authority in Wales and elsewhere.

Farrar’s also defends at the highest level of serious crime in fraud and documents cases. The geographical spread of work is very wide with strong emphasis on London, Wales, Cheshire, the Midlands and East Anglia.

Watch a short introduction to our Criminal Fraud Team below.

Members of Chambers have wide ranging experience of fraud issues arising in the context of civil litigation, predominantly in relation to road traffic litigation (i.e LVI claims, slam-ons, phantom passengers) and personal injury claims (including issues arising from conscious exaggeration of injuries).

Watch a short overview of our Civil Fraud and Fundamental Dishonesty Team.

In addition to extensive trial experience, Members of Chambers are able to advise both in relation to evidential and pleading matters, the seeking and obtaining of exemplary damages against fraudulent claimants and the instigation and conduct of civil contempt proceedings.
