What defences are available for corporate crime charges?

There are various defences that can be explored, either by showing that the act was not actually illegal or by proving lack of knowledge or intention in relation to the alleged offence. A lot will depend on the circumstances of each case and the severity of the charges and we can guide our clients through each step of the legal process. Similarly, where applicable, we can help in reducing any sentences handed down by the court by putting forward strong mitigation that is tailored to your particular circumstances.

Defending individuals, as well as corporations in white-collar crime cases, can be very complicated and there are often investigations by different regulatory and investigative agencies. These cases require careful forensic analysis of all the evidence which tends to be substantial in these cases.

Our specialist defence criminal lawyers will ensure no stone is left unturned so that we can mount as robust a defence as possible. We can offer both in-court as well as out-of-court advice and assistance to achieve the best result for your case.
