Our legal services in Brighton

Fraud and Financial Crime

If you are being charged with, or are under investigation for, any form of financial crime, our criminal defence team are on hand to offer their expertise to support your case.

We have experience dealing with a range of clients, from individuals to businesses alike, so are well placed to offer support for various types of cases, including allegations of fraud, money laundering, cheating the revenue, bribery and corruption.

Tax and HMRC Investigations

If HMRC suspect that tax has been underpaid or avoided altogether, they will have grounds to carry out an investigation into your company’s finances, which could lead to potentially devastating consequences.

Our business defence lawyers in Brighton can work alongside leading tax barristers to deal with these matters in an effective manner. We can provide support in a number of related areas, including representation at tax tribunals, excise cases and condemnation proceedings.

Health and Safety Prosecutions

Being Health and Safety compliant is essential for every business as being prosecuted for an offence can result in serious penalties, as well as irreparably damaging your company’s reputation. Expert legal advice in this often-complex area is therefore essential.

Our regulatory offence solicitors in Brighton can advise you and your company through every stage of dealing with Health and Safety investigations and proceedings, ultimately protecting your best interests.

MHRA Investigations and Prosecutions

Breaches of the sale and distribution of unlicensed medicines or the sale of licensed products by an unauthorised vendor are serious offences, which means that expert legal representation is a necessity.

Our criminal defence team have extensive knowledge of this niche area and regularly advise, represent and defend clients who are being investigated or prosecuted by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).


Sexual Offences

If you are being accused of a sexual offence, there could be potentially devastating effects on your personal and professional life. We can offer clear and supportive legal advice from the outset to help give you the best possible chance of a positive outcome.

We have a strong track record of success when representing clients facing these types of allegations and we can ensure that your individual case is handled sensitively and confidentially at all times.

Violent Offences

Our criminal defence solicitors in Brighton are on hand to help guide you through any investigations or prosecutions you may be facing for a violent offence. We understand that this is bound to be a difficult time for yourself, so we strive to sensitively handle your case while providing you with the best possible defence.

We have experience in handling cases involving violent offences from minor assaults, through to the most serious cases, including murder, manslaughter, kidnap and robbery.

Drug Offences

If you are convicted for a drug offence, then you can receive severe penalties on top of potentially losing your job. Efficient and robust legal advice is therefore essential if you are to achieve a positive outcome from any investigations or prosecutions you may be facing.

Our team have previously represented individuals who have been under arrest for drug related offences, including drug possession, supply, production and importation.

Driving Offences

While they may be relatively common, driving offences can still result in serious negative consequences and often prove to be disruptive to both you and your family. 

Our driving offences solicitors in Brighton can provide you with an expert level of legal advice at every stage of criminal proceedings and have experience handling cases involving everything from minor traffic offences, to serious crimes such as death by careless driving and death by dangerous driving.
