Our Criminal Defence Expertise

Fraud and Financial Crime

Old Bailey Solicitors has considerable experience acting for both individual and corporate clients facing allegations of fraud, money laundering, cheating the revenue, bribery, corruption and other similar offences. If you are under investigation or have been charged with any kind of financial offence, Old Bailey Solicitors can provide you with expert legal advice and representation.

Tax and HMRC Investigations

If you are suspected of being involved in a missing trader intra-community fraud (sometimes known as carousel fraud), HMRC may be withholding your claim to VAT input repayments. We work with leading tax barristers and Queens Counsel to ensure that you stand the best possible chance of reclaiming any disputed amounts of VAT.

Health and Safety Prosecutions

Health and Safety offences can result in reputational damage, heavy fines and prison sentences. Old Bailey Solicitors can provide expert advice and representation to individuals, companies, directors and employees from the earliest stages of an investigation, including interviews under caution, right through to court proceedings if necessary.

MHRA Investigations and Prosecutions

Offences under the Medicines Act 1968 include a broad range of crimes including the sale and distribution of unlicensed medicines or the sale of licensed products by unauthorised vendors. Old Bailey Solicitors regularly advise, represent and defend clients being investigated and prosecuted by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). We can represent you if you are going to be interviewed under caution at the MHRA headquarters in Victoria or we can represent you at Court anywhere in England and Wales.

Licensing Applications & Appeals

Whether you are an established company or setting up a new business, our experienced licensing team can assist you at every stage of the application process. We can advise you on all aspects of licensing law, including the sale of alcohol, gambling, or other entertainment.

Sexual Offences

Allegations of Sexual Offences are more emotive and personal than any other allegation. Old Bailey Solicitors have significant experience and have enjoyed notable successes defending those accused of Sexual Offences . We will handle your case sensitively and confidentially.

Violent Offences

Offences of violence vary in their gravity. Our criminal defence lawyers have vast experience dealing with the full range of Violent Offences , from murder, manslaughter, kidnap and robbery, to minor assaults. No matter how serious the allegation, we understand the stress and worry that cases of this nature can bring and we guide our clients through their case with sensitivity and defend them with rigour.

Drug Offences

From large importations to cases of personal possession, our criminal defence lawyers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to represent those under arrest for drug related offences. There is often a high level of misunderstanding relating to drug offences including whether or not a particular drug is illegal and what amounts to supply of drugs. It is essential that expert legal advice is sought as soon as possible and Old Bailey Solicitors can help you, no matter what stage your case has reached.

Driving Offences

The law surrounding road traffic offences is particularly complex so obtaining expert legal advice at an early stage could be the difference between receiving a ban or walking away with a valid driving licence, or avoiding severe financial penalties. Old Bailey Solicitors can guide you through the entire process; from the time of arrest, through the police station and after charge.
