EncroChat are encrypted communications made available through a modified mobile device, which is used by celebrities and also cyber criminals and criminals that thrive off anonymity and deception. However, it has recently experienced a breach from Government bodies, who were able to take over the service which resulted in a huge 746 arrests in the UK alone. 


What is the EncroChat Takeover? 

On 13th June 2020, users received a message stating that the malware systems had been breached, and that EncroChat could no longer guarantee the security of their devices, also advising users to power off and dispose of their device. 


It was first infiltrated in April 2020 by law enforcement agencies in France and the Netherlands. This information has since been shared with law enforcement agencies across Europe, including the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) – codenamed Operation Venetic. 


Since, they have arrested over 746 suspects, seized £54 million in cash, 77 firearms, two tonnes of drugs and 55 high value cars – as well as much more. They also managed to successfully mitigate over 200 criminal activities such as kidnappings and executions between rival gangs. 


Up to 50% of EncroChat users may have had their communications intercepted. 


What should you do if caught up in EncroChat? 

If you are being interviewed by police because of the EncroChat hack, it is vital that you get immediate legal advice. However, you may come under investigation before being arrested, therefore it is vital that you appoint a criminal defence solicitor as soon as you think you are under investigation.We are experienced criminal defence solicitors.

“Raz Mann is the sort of solicitor that I, as a Barrister who specialises in heavyweight crime want on my team. He is nationally acknowledged as one of the top criminal solicitors, his extensive following is a testament to that assertion. He brings a sound tactical awareness of how to advance his clients case from the police station onwards and throughout the trial process. He is particularly astute in recognising and addressing at an early stage the most advantageous way to bring about the required result in his cases. In short he delivers. That’s why he is the go to Mann!"

Baz Bhatia

“I am a criminal barrister with over 20 years experience. My instructions consist exclusively of serious fraud, money laundering and other complex criminal conspiracies. I only work with a handful of solicitors, those that are themselves experienced in the defence of such serious and complex cases. One such solicitor is Raz Mann, he and I have worked closely on a number of grave criminal matters over a period of years. In my view, his preparation is meticulous and his advice first rate. My job is made that much easier given the superb way in which the case has already been conducted prior to my instruction. Raz has a rare intellect coupled with fine judgement and an insatiable appetite for work. It is obvious to all who observe him that he displays a steely determination to get the job done! In short, if someone is unlucky enough to be charged with a crime they should seek to tip the scales in their favour by instructing Raz from the outset.

Raz Mann excels when dealing with the most complex and serious cases. He is sought out nationally by clients as a consequence of his ability to fight for the client and going the extra mile in his cases. His tactical awareness and tenacity make him an excellent litigator.

As a result he is sought out by clients across the UK.
