Firm profile submitted by Rahman Ravelli Solicitors

THE FIRM Since being established in 2001, Rahman Ravelli has rapidly developed into one of the country’s most prominent firms in the defence of white-collar and complex crime, serious and corporate fraud, civil recovery, bribery and corruption, compliance and regulatory matters. With headquarters in Yorkshire and offices in the heart of London and the midlands, the firm has gained a national and international following. Rahman Ravelli is made up of experts and specialists in all areas of criminal and regulatory defence, which goes some way to explaining its widely diverse client base. It is well known for its frequent, regular battles against major fraud investigatory organisations, including the SFO, the FCA, SEC, the City of London Police, Interpol, NCA, HMRC, the FBI and OLAF. Rahman Ravelli regularly receives instructions on cases ranging from multi-million pound fraud to money laundering allegations, major Tax fraud (including MTIC and carousel fraud), mortgage and property fraud, investment frauds and boiler room fraud. The firm’s team includes members who are experts in matters such as restraint orders, confiscation and/or freezing of clients’ assets in alleged proceeds of crime matters (POCA) or civil recovery actions (Part 5 POCA proceedings usually brought by the NCA).

PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK The firm’s portfolio routinely consists of high-status cases. Rahman Ravelli’s International Regulatory and Corporate Crime Division works on high-profile bribery and corruption cases in the UK and abroad. These cases, often involving billions of dollars, involve governments and companies of all sizes and from many industry sectors. Rahman Ravelli has the expertise and experience to both advise on precautionary measures - particularly in relation to the Bribery Act – and defend actual prosecutions. Rahman Ravelli’s Commercial Fraud Department is inter-alia instructed on some of the largest property fraud cases, involving hundreds of millions of pounds. In such cases, it advises directors, mortgage brokers and other professionals, including lawyers. The firm is engaged in high-profile tax fraud cases, including MTIC and carousel fraud, as well as multi-million pound investment frauds that involve numerous countries and agencies, NHS frauds involving medical professionals, education frauds, whitecollar crime, money laundering and tax evasion cases, to mention just a few. It has played a prominent role in cases involving large-scale, conservation-related tax fraud and has recently represented a large number of professional advisors facing major Ponzi scheme and forex allegations. Advising professionals on massive scale Pension Fraud allegations is also a speciality. The firm continues to advise companies, including PLCs, on compliance and regulatory risk.
