Christopher Dyke - DAC Beachcroft
Christopher Dyke

Chris is a fraud, cartel and white collar crime lawyer.

He has extensive experience advising clients in a variety of sectors on a wide range of regulatory and criminal matters including investigations and prosecutions brought by the SFO, the FCA, Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). 

Chris has recently advised in proceedings involving conspiracy to defraud, bribery, insider dealing, market abuse, export control & trade sanctions as well as complex confiscation and restraint issues including cash seizures. 

He represented a number of individuals charged by the FCA with insider dealing as part of Operation Tabernula, the FCA’s largest ever investigation into insider dealing and in the US/UK LIBOR investigations conducted by the SFO, FCA and Department of Justice with other US regulators.  He also acted for a senior manager of a multi-national construction company charged by the SFO with corruption offences relating to the payment of bribes to foreign public officials in connection with large scale public engineering projects.

In relation to cartels, Chris recently represented a senior manager of a multinational company in one of only three prosecutions of criminal cartel offences by the CMA to date. 

Chris has achieved particular recent successes negotiating with prosecutors on the disposal of criminal proceedings under The Attorney General’s Guidelines on Plea Discussions in Cases of Serious or Complex Fraud and the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005.

In 2010, Chris was seconded to the General Counsel’s Division of the Financial Conduct Authority, where he was involved in advising on public, regulatory and financial services law relating to policy and supervision within the regulation of the financial services industry.
