Our team are able to offer bespoke and expert legal advice on defending a private prosecution. 

Increasing numbers of private prosecutions are now being brought before the criminal court.

Often people feel that prosecution agencies are unable to properly investigate allegations or give adequate time to them. 

A person facing a private prosecution will be understandably very concerned about the dire repercussions of them possibly being convicted and getting a criminal record. 

Our team are able to offer bespoke and expert legal advice on defending a private prosecution. 

A private prosecution will start in the Magistrates Court and we are able to offer a tailored legal service giving you advice as to how best to deal with a private prosecution. 

Detailed instructions will need to be taken and representations may need to be made to those issuing the private prosecution and it may be that the Crown Prosecution Service need to be persuaded to take over conduct of the prosecution.

Private prosecutions can result in a person having to pay significant costs to those bringing the prosecution and it is crucial that you seek advice early in order to avoid potentially crippling cost implications.

Fees for our services

Fees for defending private prosecutions will vary depending on the complexity of the case.  Every case is difference and some cases are much more complex than others. 

Defending private prosecution cases are usually a matter which would need to be paid for privately and not under legal aid so contact us today for a no obligation estimate of your fees in your case.

We are not able to assist with cases where people want to bring a private prosecution, we only deal with cases where we defend them.
