Established since 1996, and with a strong team of experienced solicitors and specialist advocates, we are one of the largest and most experienced criminal law firms in West London with strength and capacity to take on financial crime cases, extradition, prison law and all other criminal defence work.
Ben Lansbury started the firm in Hammersmith in 1996, initially as a sole principal, moving to North End Road, West Kensington (Olympia) the following year. Charles Worthington joined the partnership in 1999 and the firm has continued to grow steadily. In 2006 the firm moved back to Hammersmith and into its present offices.
We have many years’ experience covering all areas of criminal law ranging from simple Road Traffic Offences to Murder. We are Lexcel accredited and have Law Society Specialist status. Our expertise includes not just defending common charges in the Magistrates’ Court and the Crown Court but also more complex investigations of fraud & forgery; confiscation proceedings or restraint and receivership proceedings under proceeds of crime legislation; money laundering; computer crime & internet offences; Customs & Excise and Revenue offences; conspiracy to allegations; extradition proceedings; anti-social behaviour orders and applications. Whatever the charge we will examine the facts and the law and defend you to the highest professional and ethical standards. We have a long-standing contract with the Legal Aid Agency and Legal aid is available subject to means.
We are members of the VHCC (Very High Cost Case) panel and have acted in a number of serious fraud matters including immigration and VAT frauds, some of which have attracted significant press coverage.
In employment law we specialise particularly in the area of drafting of and advising on compromise agreements when employment is due to be terminated by redundancy or on agreed terms, but can advise on all areas of employment law.
Whatever the case you will benefit from personal contact with a senior lawyer who will run your case and be available to you from start to finish. We are not confined to the London area and can arrange representation throughout the UK.
