Operation Gestalt

The metropolitan police investigation, codenamed Operation Gestalt was based around a complex diversion fraud and resulted in the questioning of twenty former and serving customs officials.


Maidments solicitors specialise in the representation and tenacious defence of allegations or charges such as those being investigated under Operation Gestalt. We are already acting for several clients in relation to this operation and have the specialist skills and experience in money laundering and proceeds of crime investigations including in house counsel and Solicitor Advocates who can represent clients in the crown court.

This firm is repeatedly asked to assist clients who have already, at some time, during the course of an investigation or Court proceedings instructed Solicitors.  We are used to dealing with such enquiries and advising as to the transfer of a case from previous Solicitors to this practice.  It is important to those the subject of an investigation or prosecution, that they are confident in the Solicitors that they instruct and that they consider those that act for them are doing everything they possibly can to assist.
