Criminal Proceedings

We have many years’ experience acting for solicitors and other members of the legal profession facing criminal investigations and proceedings.

We act in investigations and proceedings relating to a wide variety of offences, whether it be a complex fraud, sexual offences, assaults, drug abuse or relatively minor offences. We do not act in the provision of advice and representation at the Magistrates Court in relation to summary only road traffic offences dealt with at a single hearing (as referenced by 1.3(e) SRA Transparency Rules).

We manage the criminal proceedings in tandem with the self-report regime and representations to the SRA with a view to maintaining the ability to continue to practise.

When properly and sensibly managed, most clients are able to continue their professional careers without hindrance.

To discuss a criminal issue in confidence please contact Nick Trevette on 07976 795014.
