Cartwright King is the sole Sheffield firm to secure a place in the top rank among the law firms specialising in business crime in the Yorkshire region, ahead of two other Sheffield firms, Howells and Irwin Mitchell.
The firm is hailed as a national player for heavyweight fraud and crime matters, with a strong focus on missing trader or carousel fraud, which exploits the way different countries treat VAT on goods crossing their borders.
Its team, lead by Mark Fowler, has been strengthened by the arrival of Paul Henocq, Frances Tyler and Rachel Baldwin and also includes specialist in misconduct in public office matters, Mandip Kumar.
Chris Davey and Danny Simpson are described as the standout figures at Howells, which has a significant general crime practice and recently had its criminal defence expertise expanded by the arrival of Chris Wong.
Irwin Mitchell’s team is co-headed by Paul Haycock and Dan Stowers, who is described by clients as the ideal defence solicitor in serious fraud cases.
The firm focuses on serious fraud matters, very high cost cases and regulatory work.
