Robert Morris has a broad practice but has specialised in money laundering, corruption and fraud. He is regularly called upon to advise in civil cases that involve allegations of financial crime.
Morris’s principal speciality is money laundering and the proceeds of crime. He regularly advises companies in the UK and abroad on such matters and has advised on the money laundering regimes of East Africa, the British Virgin Islands and the Isle of Man. He acts for both the prosecution and defence in confiscation proceedings and has represented the victims of fraud in civil recovery proceedings.
Morris is also experienced in dealing with complex fraud. He advises parties in arbitral proceedings on issues of corruption and fraud and companies on compliance with the Bribery Act 2010.
He often represents both individuals and companies in regards to tax fraud. He represents companies in the First-tier Tax Tribunal in cases where HM Revenue & Customs has made allegations that transactions are connected to MTIC fraud, while he represents individuals accused of film tax-credit frauds.
Morris’s broad practice also encompasses general crime, extradition, police discipline and courts-martial and summary appeal courts, where he advises soldiers facing disciplinary proceedings.
