In recent years the LIBOR scandal has hit the headlines after traders at several banks were said to have influenced this key interest rate. The London Inter-bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) is used to set trillions of dollars of financial contracts, including many mortgages.
Our Serious Fraud solicitors have specialist expertise of LIBOR investigations involving trades running into billions of pounds across jurisdictions around the world. We have defended senior bank employees against allegations investigated by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and US Department of Justice (DoJ). We have also guided clients through the internal bank investigations into LIBOR rate fixing.
Law enforcement authorities have already commenced prosecutions against bank traders for manipulating the LIBOR rate and the SFO and FCA have publicly stated their determination to charge others.
