Our well known criminal team prosecutes and defends criminal proceedings in the Magistrates and Crown Courts, as well as appearing in the Court of Appeal. We are regularly instructed in cases of the utmost seriousness, from life threatening violence to serious sexual assault to complex fraud. We are experienced at dealing with cases where there are multiple defendants, numerous allegations and extensive documentary evidence and are very skilled at identifying the salient facts and documents in order to produce the most compelling case.

Many of our barristers specialise in a particular aspect of criminal law – for example fraud, serious violence and attempted murder, serious sexual assault, and road traffic offences – and we also accept instructions in private prosecutions, the Coroner’s Court and Court Martials. We represent clients throughout the country. Many of our criminal barristers also undertake regulatory work, and are ideally suited to this work which often involves criminal allegations. We are always well prepared, realistic in our advice and committed and fearless advocates in court.
