About Commercial and Cyber Fraud: A Legal Guide to Justice for Businesses

It is estimated that there are over five million incidents of fraud and two million cyber-related crimes committed annually in the UK costing approximately £193 billion with organisations losing £183 billion per year.

Aimed at business directors, business owners, in-house lawyers and managers, forensic accountants and non-UK lawyers, Commercial and Cyber Fraud: A Legal Guide to Justice for Businesses sets out the legal process, from discovery of the crime and consideration of options, through engaging lawyers, early interventions to secure assets in the hands of fraudsters and culminating in sections on legal rights and processes, including court trials.

- Includes detailed guidance on how to choose, use and pay for lawyers
- Explains strategic imperatives, the relative merits of the different justice options and the hurdles that might have to be overcome

“The book takes you through the subject in a sensible and masterly way… the content is impeccable and important…Having become a victim of crime…if you want to recover something, let alone go after that intangible thing 'justice' this book is a worthwhile read.” –  Professional Security Magazine

As a legal practitioner in the fight against fraud, I found this title a really practical and useful guide. It brings together the maze of disparate considerations that one must take into account, necessarily in short order, when responding to a fraud on behalf of one's client or employer. Framed in simple language, and easy to digest; there are plenty of great generalist tips and solid examples. The author also covers discrete, specialist aspects, for instance, cyber and criminal considerations, which even seasoned generalists will find helpful. I highly recommend the book for those professionals who find themselves advising in relation to or responding to fraud, looking for a good overview.” –  Richard Trainer, Legal Director, Mishcon de Reya LLP
