In common with other professional service firms, from time to time Addleshaw Goddard's name (or the names of its individual employees or solicitors) are used by fraudsters in scam emails, letters and faxes to add credibility to the fraudulent communication.
Whilst we are regrettably not in a position to be aware of or to police such scams, this section highlights those scams which have been brought to our attention and which we consider may pose a risk to other potential victims.
Addleshaw Goddard will never issue unsolicited communications confirming that clients have been subject to investigation by regulatory authorities and as a result, their bank accounts have been frozen. If you receive such a communication please treat it as a scam.
If you receive a communication from any email address other than addleshawgoddard.com or aglaw.com it is also likely to be fraudulent.
If you have received a communication purportedly from this firm and you are unsure of its authenticity, please do contact the AG press office.
