Olliers vast experience of defending forgery allegations dates back many years. The firm’s reputation for committed and rigorous defence work means that we attract some of the most complex fraud cases in the country.
The offence of forgery is covered by the Forgery and Counterfeiting Act of 1981 and examples include forging a cheque, art work, passports, financial statements, memorabilia and antiques.
Essentially it involves making what is known as a ‘false instrument’ intending that the victim accepts it as a genuine and as a consequence of this loss is suffered.
Olliers provide specialist advice and representation throughout England and Wales.
We are ranked as a Top Tier criminal firm in both of 2013 editions of the Legal 500 and Chambers Directory.
