Dedicated Team to Tackle Business Crime; LEGAL in Association with WWW.Wilkes.Co.UK Lawyers Set for Cases as Fraud Rates Rise in Recession
Byline: TOM SCOTNEY Legal & Finance Editor
Law firm Challinors has set up a dedicated fraud and asset recovery team in Birmingham to deal with rising rates of reported business crime across the region.
And fraud lawyers at firms across the city have been finding more work coming in as recession-hit firms uncover more shady dealings after examining their books. The team at Challinors will take in two of the firm's partners - Arun Chauhan and Mark Kenkre - to work on a variety of types of complicated fraud case, supported by seven solicitors at the firm's Newhall Street offices.
And while the team at Challinors is believed to be the largest one working outside London, other fraud lawyers in Birmingham said they had also seen plenty of work turn up since the advent of the financial downturn.
