Business Investigations and Governance
IBB Solicitors specialises in criminal, corporate, financial and regulatory defence. We have an experienced specialist department called the Business Investigations and Governance team (‘BIG’) which is led by Anil Rajani. IBB is on the Serious Fraud and Very High Costs Cases panels and is therefore one of the select few firms in England and Wales able to handle the most complicated and demanding cases funded by the Legal Services Commission.
The department has experience in defending a broad range of corporate investigations and prosecutions by bodies such as the Crown Prosecution Service, Serious Fraud Office, Serious Organised Crime Agency, Office of Fair Trading, Financial Services Authority, Department for Business Innovation and Skills, Health and Safety Executive and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. The department has also been successful in managing and preventing investigations from reaching the prosecution stage. We are able, due to our size and expertise, to put together multi-disciplinary teams to undertake matters that have both criminal/commercial elements.
