Alun Milford

Partner, Kingsley Napley LLP

Alun is a partner in the Criminal Litigation team and specialises in serious or complex financial crime, proceeds of crime litigation and corporate investigations. He has particular knowledge and experience of issues surrounding cross-border criminal investigations, corporate crime and deferred prosecution agreements. Alun advises companies and individuals on the full range of white-collar and business crime-related issues, including fraud, bribery, money laundering, confiscation, civil recovery (including account freezing orders) and sanctions. Typically his clients are caught up in investigations undertaken by domestic enforcement authorities such as the Serious Fraud Office, His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, the National Crime Agency and the police, and he also acts in cases where the investigation is conducted by an overseas authority, such as the US Department of Justice, which has asked the United Kingdom for mutual legal assistance. His corporate work includes undertaking investigations, frequently with an international element, and liaising with the enforcement authorities. He has experience of negotiating deferred prosecution agreements. For individuals, he acts for both suspects and witnesses. Alun joined Kingsley Napley from the public sector where, over a twenty-six-year career as a government lawyer and public prosecutor, he worked in a wide variety of roles including General Counsel at the Serious Fraud Office, the Crown Prosecution Services’ Head of Organised Crime, its Head of Proceeds of Crime and Revenue and Customs Prosecutions Office’s Head of Asset Forfeiture Division. He also worked as a prosecutor in central London and a lawyer in the Attorney General’s Office. He is an excellent strategist, and his advice is always practical and outcome-focused. Alun is the co-editor of Kingsley Napley and 6 KBW College Hill on Fraud, a regular speaker at conferences and an established commentator on economic crime issues. From 2016 to 2023 he sat on the Board of Advisers of New York University's Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement.
