Everyone has the right to a fair trial’ - Article 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998

Our lawyers regularly represent clients for offences ranging from road traffic contraventions right through to high profile cases in the press and media and those involving the most serious offences including complex fraud, sexual offences and murder. We treat each case with the very highest levels of professionalism and care, and we will be there to advise you at every step throughout the proceedings. Our firm has developed an enviable reputation in the courts for fighting hard for our clients no matter who they are, or what they are accused of.

One of the cornerstones of our success is our team of experienced and highly skilled in-house barristers and solicitor-advocates which ensures a close and effective working relationship between the lawyer preparing your case and your representative in court.

Within our crime team we have a dedicated department dealing with serious fraud and business crime which has lawyers experienced in handling VHCC (very high cost case) prosecutions and complex frauds. We also have a separate extradition department headed by Giovanna Fiorentio which has had considerable success in representing clients of all nationalities facing extradition abroad.

We are able to offer legal aid where the eligibility tests are satisfied and competitive private rates where legal aid is not available. Click here for further details for funding your case.
