We represent clients who are accused of committing a criminal offence and find themselves in the bewildering world of the Criminal Justice System. 

We always involve our clients in the strategy of their case, empowering you to help with decisions on evidence and how everything will be presented in court. 

As well as preparing our clients’ cases, we often uncover new evidence. We may talk to witnesses, visit locations, and instruct private detectives to ensure that all lines of enquiry have been followed.  

You can have peace of mind that we will leave no stone unturned. 

Our team specialise in the following areas: 

  • Serious fraud and commercial bribery with specialist barristers
  • Murder and gross negligence manslaughter
  • Allegations of historic sexual offences with our own private investigators
  • Instructing our own collision experts in road death cases
  • Challenging drug experts in possession, supply and cultivation cases
  • Challenging the decision to add our client to the DBS Barring List following a conviction or caution
  • Engaging with police officers at the investigation stage to provide additional lines of enquiry and divert cases away from prosecution
  • Exploring the issue of modern slavery for young people and vulnerable adults
  • Technical analysis of computer/mobile phone evidence
  • Appealing a conviction on fresh evidence or an error in law
