Police look for law firms to pursue fraud for victims


Police look for law firms to pursue fraud for victims

Cheshire Police’s Economic Crime Unit wants to put together central information on law firms based in England and Wales who are capable of offering a civil recovery service in relation to fraud cases.

The unit has an increasing number of victims of fraud who come to it with complaints which for a number of reasons cannot be progressed. However, the cases have the potential for civil recovery and victims may want to take the matter further.

The unit is looking to put together a policy within the police service whereby victims of fraud receive information about their options including that of contacting law firms or service providers who can offer advice and potentially take on their cases.

The unit plans to provide victims with a factsheet detailing the brief principles of civil recovery and a list of firms (detailing their criteria of areas covered etc).

Information and contact details

If you’re interested, please provide the following information:

  • whether you would be willing to participate and be included on the list
  • what sort of case brief or ‘package’ you would like to receive upon referral eg case summary, potential assets, CCJs, intel checks etc
  • what criteria you would like to be categorised under ie regions covered, case size, international capabilities and specialised areas of business
  • contact details for further enquiries and if possible a profile of what the firm has to offer in terms of civil recovery

Please send this information or any queries to fraud@cheshire.pnn.police.uk
