Should you or your business become involved in a criminal prosecution we think creatively about all options available. We recognize that the best results can often be achieved by negotiation with the authorities including where appropriate Deferred Prosecution Agreements and plea bargaining. This may avoid prosecution altogether.

Where there is no scope for negotiation we have many years experience successfully defending our clients from criminal prosecution. We can help you if:

  • you have been arrested or your business has been subject to a ‘dawn raid’
  • the authorities want to speak with you or interview you about an investigation
  • you think you may be prosecuted for a criminal offence
  • you have been charged with a criminal offence.

Whether for you personally or for your business and regardless of the issues, we will take pride in fiercely guarding your interests and protecting you.
