National Firm Defending Serious and Complex Cases
The department has acted in some of the highest profile criminal trials of the modern era, including the Manchester Gang Trials, the Strangeways and Winson Green Prison Riot cases and trials in the wake of the Rotherham Child Abuse Scandal. The firm is a market leader in sexual offences allegations, murder defence, and conspiracy cases.
It defends major fraud and bribery cases. It won an acquittal in the final ‘Fake Sheikh’ Corruption Case, and in the Royal Household Bribery Case. It is instructed in the Unaoil Bribery Prosecution, the Manchester Arena Fraud, and the £450m 'Patisserie Valerie' investigation.
The firm's focus is to win the client’s case by any means within the rules, with an emphasis on stopping cases before they reach court.
