Position

Aziz Rahman is the senior partner at Rahman Ravelli, which he established in 2001 and has bases in Halifax, London and Birmingham. As a highly ranked and renowned expert in serious and corporate fraud, complex crime, bribery and corruption, compliance and regulatory matters, he represents corporations, company directors, professionals, high net worth individuals and members of the public from the earliest stages of an investigation. He has constant dealings with investigating agencies such as the SFO, NCA , City of London Police, FCA and HMRC. Owing to his expertise in coordinating national, international and multi-agency cases, he has experience of dealing with investigatory bodies such as OLAF, the SEC, SIPT and other organisations around the world.
