Often described as white collar crime, this area of criminal law covers a multitude of complex offending based around a central element of dishonesty. The evidence often requires a multidisciplinary approach and a keen eye for detail.
Fraud involves a dishonest intention to make a gain or cause a loss (or risk a loss). It can be committed by making a false representation, by failing to disclose information, or by an abuse of position.
