The Law Society's Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme
We are members of the Law Society's Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme, which covers all types of criminal law work.
As a member, we have shown, to the satisfaction of the Law Society and through external examination, that we have and will maintain a high level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice in the area of criminal litigation.
We regularly represent clients, whether as individuals or as companies in relation to investigations conducted by Trading Standards, HMRC, HSE, Local Authority and other regulatory agencies. Our experience in these cases shows that in many cases, the earlier we are involved in a case, the better the outcome for the client.
