Tresaderns & Partners SL, Price Stone Group SL and Anderson McCormack SL (Gooding, Rumsey, Emery, Morris, Hughes, Farmer and Coleman)

Six individuals were sentenced to between three and seven years in May 2013 as a result of an SFO investigation into what is believed to be one of the largest boiler room frauds ever pursued by a UK authority. These sentences followed the defendants being convicted by a jury on an indictment containing a single count of conspiracy to defraud. The six defendants formed the senior management and operations team for three Madrid boiler rooms and conspired with Mr Jeffrey Revell-Reade and Mr Anthony May to defraud investors with or through the entities Tresaderns & Partners SL, Price Stone Group SL and Anderson McCormack SL. The defendants were arrested between 2007 and 2009 and were charged in 2010. A seventh defendant pleaded guilty to three counts of money laundering and was sentenced to 21 months’ imprisonment, to be suspended for two years.
