We specialise in providing representation and advice at all levels throughout all proceedings, bringing our expertise in other fields such as Public Law and General Crime to the fore when a case crosses into other areas, as it so often does.

We represent the membership and have particular experience in representing police officers in linked Criminal and Public Law proceedings; we are mindful from the outset of the potential for alleged criminal liability and wider culpability.

In particular barristers have represented officers facing allegations of:

- Corruption;

- Data protection offences;

- Misconduct in public office;

- Sexual assaults whilst on duty;

- Perverting the Course of Justice;

- Causing death or serious injury by driving dangerously.

Our barristers are routinely instructed in sensitive, complex and high-profile cases all over the country. Owing to the breadth and experience of our criminal department, we excel in defending disciplinary proceedings with potential or concurrent criminal proceeding.
