OUR EXPERTISE
We support our clients in any criminal matter ranging from serious fraud to sexual offences, modern slavery to murder, and money laundering. We are available 24 hours a day to support you from the initial call about a problem through to representation in court to ensure you have the right advice at every step.
WHAT WE DO

We are top-ranked in the legal directories for our work with clients facing criminal investigations and prosecutions. Our advice often starts with supporting our clients at police station interviews and then navigating the potential investigation and proceedings. We often represent individuals in the public eye as well as business owners and professionals. We are increasingly supporting young people involved in allegations to help protect them from career-limiting consequences following a prosecution.

Criminal allegations can sometimes mean it is more difficult to travel to certain countries and we will help ensure that, wherever possible, you can live your life as you need to.
