It is a mistake to assume that all criminal lawyers provide a similar service. Having a top law firm with a really good win rate on your side can make the difference between winning and losing. Don’t take the risk.

A selection of some of our solicitors' recent cases

  • Our client was found not guilty by unanimous verdict of causing the death of a motorcyclist by dangerous driving. We pleaded to death by careless driving but the Crown still chased the more serious charge. Through expert representation we were able to secure a fantastic result.

  • The 2018-2019 Unaoil Bribery Case, in which members of the Western oil industry companies are accused of paying bribes for contracts to rebuild Iraq’s oil infrastructure, widely reported as the World’s Biggest Bribe Scandal.

  • Our client was accused of sexual assault and making indecent images of children. We showed that the witnesses were professional thieves with a history of making sexual allegations against their victims. A not guilty verdict was ordered by the judge during the trial.

  • Our client was accused of historic sexual assault and rape by his younger sister and another sibling. After pressure on the police and prosecution and pointing out both inconsistencies and a possible ulterior motive, the case was dropped at the police investigation stage.

  • Representation of several defendants in criminal proceedings resulting from the Rotherham sexual abuse scandal.

  • Our client was accused of downloading and viewing indecent images. On the advice of his previous lawyers he had already pleaded guilty. He was not guilty of the offences, and our solicitors applied to have his guilty pleas cancelled or ‘vacated’.
