At Hogan Brown we undertake criminal defence work. We adopt an unashamedly old fashioned approach to helping our clients: we believe that hard work and preparation gets results. The firm’s lawyers are dedicated to achieving the best possible result in even the most high profile cases, from white collar crime to drug charges and violent crimes. We have experience representing companies and individuals from all walks of life. Our firm’s success is hard evidence that going the extra mile pays off.
Talent alone is not enough to win cases
Many lawyers have raw talent, but the difference between winning and losing a criminal defence comes down to time. Even the most experienced criminal lawyer will fail unless he or she can devote sufficient time to the preparation of the client’s defence. The hardest working criminal lawyer can devote only a certain number of hours to their practice each year. By taking on a limited number of cases each year, the firm ensures that their lawyers give their all.
Having time means having resources
Every lawyer needs resources. At Hogan Brown we have adopted a collaborative structure that allows all of our lawyers to work as a team, seamlessly. We have an in-house investigative team that gets on the front foot early. We conduct the necessary factual investigations thoroughly to enable our lawyers to build (and test) strong defences for trial. The prosecution has substantial resources. At Hogan Brown we commit ourselves to levelling the playing field.
We are members of the VHCC panel and the Specialist Fraud Panel appointed by the Legal Services Commission (now the Legal Aid Agency).
We are able to provide our services to Spanish, Catalan, Italian, German and French speaking clients in their own language which alleviates the difficulties found by defendants and their families when facing an unfamiliar legal system and further, there is a language barrier.
Hogan Brown is ranked as a recommended criminal law firm in the Chambers and Partners 2013 guide, where its expertise in computer crime, asset recovery and confiscation was highlighted.
If you are suspected or accused of a criminal offence and would like to be represented by a dedicated, professional and forward-thinking team of solicitors and associates, please contact us by email, telephone or fax and we will arrange an appointment at your earliest convenience.
