Taxing Matters: Private prosecutions: an essential part of your business' toolkit

Published on 22 February 2021

We are experiencing a surge in economic crime – the National Crime Agency estimates fraud alone costs UK businesses around £140 billion a year. With the CPS and SFO barely able to scrape the tip of the iceberg, many businesses have turned to private prosecutions to recoup losses and protect their reputation.

In this episode we are delighted to be joined by leading expert William Boyce QC, a barrister at QEB Hollis Whiteman Chambers, to give us a masterclass in private prosecutions and how they might be relevant to your business.

William is a committee member of the Private Prosecutor's Association and acted for the private prosecutor in the largest private prosecution to date brought by a private individual to date.
