Experienced Assistance In Legal Cases Large And Small

Whether the offence is relatively minor or serious and complex, our lawyers understand just how confusing and frightening being arrested or charged with an offence can be.

We focus on providing you with the first class advice and representation you need, communicating with police, investigators and prosecuting authorities on your behalf to ensure your best interests are protected throughout the case.

Our specialist legal assistance is available at every stage of the case. We can advise at the police station if you are subject to an interview under caution, or put in place an expert defence should your case go to court. We can also assist in cases where there is an international element such as drug trafficking or computer crime such as hacking.

Over the years our experienced criminal defence lawyers have successfully defended clients against charges brought by a wide range of bodies, including:

  • Police Fraud Squads and Economic Crime Units
  • City of London Police
  • Crown Prosecution Service (CPS)
  • Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA)
  • British Transport Police (BTP)
  • HM Revenue & Customs
  • Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS)
  • Ministry of Defence (MOD)
  • Federation Against Copyright & Software Theft (FACT)
  • Transport for London (TFL)

Where necessary, we can work with our Public Law team to help you deal with issues of police misconduct or prison law.

We generally accept instructions to act in relation to 'general crime' cases on a privately paying basis. In certain circumstances, for example if the case is a 'very high cost case', we may be able to provide representation if legal aid is available. Contact us and we will advise you on the best way to fund your case.
