Criminal defence barristers are a highly skilled and experienced team of barrister who specialise in criminal law.
We represent individuals and business and have been involved in all types of criminal case.
Typical examples include motoring and road traffic offences, murder and other violent offences, burglary, robbery and theft, fraud offences, drug offences and all sexual offences whether recent or historic. Criminal defence barristers also currently represent those facing regulatory or licensing prosecutions and routinely advice from the earliest stages much like a solicitor.
Members of our criminal defence team also advise regularly on appeal against conviction and appeal against sentence. In many cases we have had success where others advised in the negative.
