The Legal500 noted: Bark&co’s ‘core of talented and hardworking solicitors’ have ‘a first-class reputation in matters of financial offending’, and the team ‘prepares all cases with energy and focus, and is meticulous in its work’. In a recent highlight, the firm acted for a former broker from Tullett Prebon charged with conspiring to rig the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR), a high-profile matter mounting up to trillions of dollars in value. The group also represented the CEO of a multimillion-pound logistics company, who faced allegations of conspiring with corrupt accountants to defraud HMRC of over £6m in PAYE, VAT and other payments. Practice head Giles Bark-Jones is ‘without doubt one of the sharpest defence lawyers practicing today’, and other key figures include Frederick Bunn and the ‘smart, experienced and tactically astute’ Fiona Gavriel.

We have extensive experience defending in some of the UK’s largest fraud cases, for example:

Mr Adoboli a former trader at UBS Bank who was charged with false accounting and fraud by Abuse of Position in relation to an alleged US$2.3 billion trading loss.

Successfully defended the former CEO of iSOFT Group PLC, Mr Tim Whiston. The case was only the second prosecution to be brought under section 397 of the Financial Services and Markets Act (FSMA).

Represented Asil Nadir in relation to historic allegations of theft from the company of which he had formerly been CEO, Polly Peck International. Following previous unsuccessful attempts by other firms to secure an agreement that Mr Nadir would be granted bail during the course of his trial, Mr Nadir returned to the UK in a blaze of publicity in August 2011, the Court having confirmed that he would be released on bail. The prosecution asked the court for an Order for compensation in excess of £60 million. Following representations by the defence, an Order in the sum of £5 million was made.
