Crime in London (Firms) Legal Rankings

Ranking Tables

This section ranks law firms and lawyers who represent clients during criminal investigations and proceedings at all levels, from initial police dealings and high street advisory matters all the way to the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.

We consider work taken on both a private and legal aid basis. Many of the firms listed are well known for representing high-profile individuals, including sports and entertainment personalities and leading professionals across a variety of industries. Numerous others are available for instruction by clients from all walks of life.

Representative matters handled by solicitors ranked here include cases related to the illegal drugs trade, assault, sexual offences, terrorism and homicide. Many firms take on complex work concerning organised crime activity, including people trafficking, modern slavery and large-scale child abuse networks. Some offer specialist expertise in appellate work and issues relating to alleged miscarriages of justice.

Our London rankings also have a specialist Extradition sub-table, ranking lawyers and firms for their expertise in advising on extradition proceedings, European Arrest Warrants and Interpol Red Notices, among other matters.

Fraud, money laundering, bribery and sanctions breaches are all considered under our Financial Crime chapter, and thus do not contribute to the main Crime rankings.
