The Khan Partnership's experience defending criminal fraud cases makes it an ideal advocate. 

Advising a Russian businessman in relation to a substantial international fraud perpetrated against him.  Assisting him as to his remedies in the UK and other jurisdictions including bringing a prosecution.  The value of the fraud exceeds USD 1 billion. 

We were recently instructed to carry out a detailed analysis of evidence involved in five separate conspiracies.  The value of the conspiracies is alleged to be GBP 100 million.  We were instructed to review 200,000 pages of evidence and prepare a detailed case review.  We produced a report in which we explained that five separate police investigations had been carried out over the course of four years.  Our advice explained the approach taken by the investigators, provided an analysis of numerous police interviews, a detailed analysis of the evidence gathered throughout the investigation outlining its strengths and weaknesses, set out the legal hurdles that the prosecution would need to overcome, and advised on each of the conspiracies.   We also advised on the possibility of extradition, restraint of assets and the options available to the client.

We represented a Public Limited Company registered on the London Stock Exchange in relation to a suspected fraud linked to wholesale gas trading market and electricity market with the alleged value of the fraud is GBP 70 million.  The investigation continues and the alleged fraud is said to involve suspects located in France, the UK and Italy.
