"The financial crime department at Stephensons Solicitors LLP defends clients in high-profile investigations and prosecutions brought by organisations including the SFO, FCA, HSE and HMRC. The practice is particularly recognised for its VHCC work, handling land-banking issues, Ponzi schemes, boiler room issues, and VAT and investment fraud, as well as tax evasion and money laundering mandates. 'Stand-out performer' Correna Platt, who has significant experience representing clients in serious fraud, restraint and confiscation orders and proceeds of crime issues, jointly heads up the practice with Sean Joyce.

Stephensons are a good firm that have a great reputation in criminal fraud work. They have a hard working team, and managed the pandemic well, with very quickly mobilising a large firm to work remotely." - Legal 500, 2022

"Solicitors LLP  fields a ‘very professional and committed team’ that include the ‘highly knowledgeable and experienced’ Correna Platt, and John Greenwood, who is an accredited supervisor under the Legal Aid Agency panel for Very High Cost Cases. Platt is praised for her ‘tenacity, work ethic, incisive thinking and dedication to ensuring that she gets the best possible outcome for her clients; she has a thoroughly well-deserved reputation for excellence and she is a top tier criminal solicitor when it comes to defending those charged with serious offences’. Also recommended is Sean Joyce, who has ‘built up a very good name for himself in this field’. The team regularly acts in the most high-value and substantial cases such as land-banking, Ponzi and VAT fraud as well as other areas such as investment fraud, the proceeds of crime and money laundering. In addition the team has been appointed to the Bar Standards Board interventions panel, to the Solicitors Regulation Authority interventions panel and to the Council for Licensed Conveyancers interventions panel. The group is currently advising the defendant on an ongoing fraud case spanning a number of jurisdictions involving significant sums of money. It is alleged that the defendant fraudulently mis- sold pensions investments." - Legal 500, 2018
