We are the go-to criminal law firm in London. The depth and breadth of experience we have with the staff at this practice ensure that you have the highest quality representation from your first contact with us.
We know that being investigated in relation to a criminal allegation can be a frightening experience but we will guide you through every step of the process.
Criminal law covers a multitude of offences and can be dealt with at multiple venues. The work we do covers all cases from investigations in the police station through to prosecutions in the Magistrates' and Crown Court, High Court and appeals in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. We have dealt with all cases from minor road traffic allegations through to robbery, drugs, fraud and murder and sex offences. We represent people from all walks of life, ethnic backgrounds, disabilities and genders.
We are available to represent you at the Police Station at anytime of the day or night 365 days a year. We understand that being interviewed is a daunting experience and we do everything possible to ensure that the process is a smooth one. We are always proactive and robust in defending our clients. Our aim is for a positive outcome for each client but we will always be honest and upfront with our advice. That is a trait that clients appreciate and have come to expect from us.
Young people that are dealt with in the youth Court require a Solicitor who has an ability to quickly develop a rapport. This is a specialist area and our team has the experience needed to represent young people who find themselves facing criminal allegations or requiring advice.
Certain types of offences can only be dealt with in the Magistrates’ Court and for other offences you can choose to have your case dealt with there. We will advise you every step of the way. We ensure first-rate representation for all of our clients and our experience over many decades means that we have a high success rate.
Our case preparation is first-rate. We will not leave any stone unturned and go out of our way to ensure that all aspects are covered. We are experts in disclosure and know how to push the right buttons often leading to cases being discontinued.We strongly believe that with over 4,000 criminal barristers available, we will choose the right one for each client and their specific case and needs. Barristers are specialist advocates in the Crown Court and higher Courts and so their expertise is called upon. That way we ensure you have a rounded approach and our focus is very much on teamwork.
We regularly advise individuals that have been convicted and want a second opinion on whether there are any grounds of appeal available in relation to conviction and/or sentence. The range of cases that we advise on covers the full spectrum of criminal offences.
Investigations into serious acquisitive offences often have restraint orders linked to them, including serious fraud and drugs. These can be very restricting and the requirements to comply with them can be particularly onerous. We will assist our clients to comply with them and to respond to them, making applications to the Court to amend or discharge as appropriate. We are there every step of the way with our clients to guide them through this aspect of the investigation.
For those clients whose cases result in a conviction for specific offences, the Prosecution may pursue proceedings under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. The proceedings investigate the financial circumstances and alleged ‘benefit’ from both the particular and general criminal conduct that led to the conviction. These proceedings are designed to recover money and assets which can have devastating effects on the defendants and their family and friends. We are masters at negotiation always with the client’s best interests at heart to ensure the best outcome for them. This is reflected in the number of referrals we receive from those that have been represented by another firm and seek us out to deal with the confiscation element of their case.
