Why might you need a criminal law solicitor?

For minor criminal law offences such as assault or theft, or a more serious criminal offence such as violent crime or a sexual offence, you can locate and contact specialist criminal law solicitors. If you are facing allegations of fraud, you can locate and contact a specialist fraud solicitor.

Business fraud:

If you are a company director and are being investigated or prosecuted for fraud, whether it is carousel/VAT fraud, a money-laundering offence or if you are facing a confiscation order, you can locate and contact a specialist business fraud solicitor. These areas of law often mix together elements of civil versus criminal law; it is important to have a specialist solicitor who is experienced working in both areas of law.

Regulatory offences:

Or, if you are involved in a business that is facing investigation or prosecution for health and safety or environmental health breaches, you can locate and contact a specialist regulatory offences solicitor. Again, this area of law mixes civil versus criminal law features.

Motoring offences:

For motoring offences and other traffic offences, our specialist motoring offences solicitors can advise you on whether you can appeal a penalty.
