We deal with prosecutions against both individuals and companies. Our specialist team also undertakes the defence of highly technical prosecutions brought by the Crown against businesses, including environmental and workplace prosecutions and expertise.

Our criminal law department has daily experience and expertise of the criminal courts that is not usually to be found within larger commercial firms.

Regardless of what the offence is or where the case is to be prosecuted, our expert legal advice and defence will be incisive and dare we say it, smart, whether you are eligible for Legal Aid or paying privately.

Our Approach


When you first make an enquiry with us, an experienced member of our medical law team will discuss your case with you. We will then arrange a detailed meeting to discuss your case and the surrounding circumstances. We fully appreciate that geography can sometimes prevent us from meeting with our clients, but in such an instance we are more than happy to rely on telephone or e-mail exchanges. It is also possible for a member of our team to visit those clients less physically able to meet with us in our office.
