Criminal Law

Within Chambers we have a strong Criminal Law Team  who offer a highly specialised service to all who instruct us. We conduct work at all levels from Magistrates’ Court through to the Supreme Court.

We offer representation on all types of case, ranging from Murder and Robbery through to Common Assault. We also have a dedicated Serious Fraud team and experts in sexual offences, and gang-related offences involving firearms and drug trafficking. We also boast a number of experts in fields such as computer crime.

Our members are always prepared to provide advice and assistance to you throughout the proceedings.

We have dedicated conference facilities within Chambers, but we can also attend the office of our instructing solicitor for conferences should this prove more convenient.
