Theft, Fraud and Dishonesty Offences

Theft and dishonesty offences involve the intentional and deliberate removal of another person’s property without permission, including robbery, burglary and stealing. The offences of theft and fraud overlap and it is important to understand any allegations against you as the charges carry very different considerations of the law and levels of punishment.

There are numerous different types of fraud offences that affect individuals and businesses, sometimes with a nexus between them, including:

  • Theft from employers
  • Fraud by false representation
  • Fraudulent trading and tax evasion
  • Using fraudulent documents
  • Vehicle identity theft (known as ‘car ringing’)
  • VAT evasion

A conviction for a dishonesty  offence can have a serious impact on your future and reputation. Nicholls & Nicholls are best placed to consider allegations of such offences and offer confidential legal advice and assistance. We can attend any interviews and investigatory meetings with you and on your behalf as well as provide you with written and verbal guidance as to how best to deal with the process.
