Integrity in Times of Crisis

The Criminal Litigation and Advocacy Practice Group handles criminal defence and regulatory matters.

Our lawyers understand that being investigated or prosecuted for a criminal offence is often traumatic and emotionally draining. We work hard to ensure that you understand your options and the criminal process. Where difficult decisions need to be made, we work with you and those who care about you to devise the best possible course of action. Our approach to defence work is robust, practical, cost-effective and compassionate.

Criminal defence is a team effort, and we are on your side.

Our lawyers have extensive trial experience and are able to assist you in a wide range of cases. We act in cases involving capital crimes, securities offences, fraud, corruption and violent offences.

In addition, the firm regularly advises institutional clients in regulatory and compliance matters.
