          This well known and trusted firm continues to receive praise for its high-profile extradition work."


Hallinan Blackburn Gittings & Nott was first established in Cardiff in the early 1950's and rapidly expanded to cover all areas of law. In 1970, a satellite office was established by John Blackburn Gittings in Victoria, London SW1 and within a short period of time a decision was made within that office to specialise in criminal defence work. Thereafter Victoria became our home and we have consistently expanded year on year in terms of breadth of criminal work, built up a maturity and wealth of experience whilst at the same time maintaining an approachable atmosphere, continuity and wholly professional delivery of service.


Our company has its own distinctive culture, personality and goals. We have one objective which is to obtain the best possible result for the client, and this of course relates to individual and corporate clients.


We are specialists in defending complex crime and serious fraud and have been members of the Serious Fraud Panel since its inception. We have now "obtained market recognition for our expertise, in particular, in the fields of money laundering and extradition".


We defend both publicly and privately funded clients.


We conduct criminal litigation from the Magistrates' Court level through to High Court criminal jurisdiction, the Court of Appeal and thereafter the Supreme Court. We can properly say, without sounding immodest, that we are involved in and have the conduct of many matters throughout the judicial system resulting in the establishment of crucial points of law.
