Niall Hearty

Legal Director

"A leading fraud and corporate crime defence firm, expert in the defence of large-scale bribery claims."
The Times, Best Law Firms 2021

"Best for Serious Business Criminal Law"
The Legal 500

Niall is known for his in-depth corporate crime expertise. That expertise is reflected in his achievements to date and the demand for his services.

Niall’s ability, backed with his experience of running a City firm’s business crime and fraud department, has helped make him a logical choice to lead complex and multi-jurisdictional investigations. His knowledge of cross-border and global business crime cases and the successes he has obtained for clients mean he has an impressive track record and have led to him being highlighted in the latest edition of The Legal 500 international legal guide.

His skill in coordinating bribery and corruption cases that span the globe, his achievements in cases involving agencies such as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and his ability to recognise the very best route in the most complex of investigations have made him a solicitor who is popular with corporate clients.

He has brought judicial reviews against enforcement agencies and has also successfully challenged search warrants obtained by them.

His notable victories have led to Niall also being in demand from senior business figures, high net worth individuals and CEOs for cases that involve reputational issues in relation to general and serious crime allegations.

His caseload will, at any particular time, involve a variety of high-profile, high-stakes cases. Niall’s experience covers the full range of major fraud cases, from workplace and financial fraud through to the most complicated investment fraud schemes. He is also adept at managing the most involved money laundering, proceeds of crime and serious crime investigations and has had success in major conspiracy cases.

His dogged pursuit of the facts and his ability to use both evidence and legal argument to robustly challenge prosecutors’ claims are why he is sought by senior business and financial figures who are facing investigation by the likes of the NCA, FCA, Serious Fraud Office (SFO), the City of London Police and police regional organised crime units.
