WHITE COLLAR OFFENCES IN UK
Whilst it is accurate that white collar crime is non-violent offence, it is a crime nevertheless in England and Wales as well as most other countries. White collar crime is a type of fraud through systemic lying, cheating and ‘massaging’ the corporate books for fraudulent gain. The term was first adopted in 1939 when Edwin Sutherland defined it as “a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation.” A wide variety of offences come under white collar crime but the common feature is the financial motivation. The prosecution will most likely pile up a daunting stack of evidence in order to prove their case against a suspect. The preparation needed for a white collar crime solicitor to build up a defence for the charge is very extensive and thorough one. It is vital to the outcome of the case that the defence team is made up of a team of legal luminaries who have very sharp eyes for details, very developed analytical minds and the ability to recognise leads as soon as they are glimpsed.
