Serious Crime Solicitors

If you are suspected of a serious crime or have been arrested as part of investigation, it’s vital you find a criminal defense solicitor as soon as possible. Gray & Cooper Group can help you throughout this very stressful time by providing you with first-class legal guidance and support.

At Gray &  Cooper Group we have over twenty years of experience in defending individuals accused of serious and grave crimes.Many clients approach us because we guarantee that their case will be conducted by a partner of the firm, not a junior lawyer or paralegal and because of our commitment to the highest standards of client care.

From the police station to the final court hearing your case will be conducted by a partner or a named and credentialed barrister. The barristers we work alongside are also carefully chosen from some of the top criminal chambers. They all feature highly in the Chambers directories.

Serious and grave crimes require specialist expertise because they often raise difficult and complicated issues of law or complex factual scenarios often outside the standard range of experience of many other practitioners. Typically, the complex murder, fraud and organised crimes cases we are regularly instructed in will involve many thousands of pages of evidence, reports from forensic expert witnesses and complicated technical evidence such as cell site, DNA or accountancy analysis.

Recognised as leading figures in the field of criminal law, our lawyers have been involved in one of the largest, most complicated and longest running criminal prosecutions ever staged. Our experience, legal knowledge, technical know-how and resource capabilities means that we are well equipped to deal with the most demanding and challenging cases.

Client A was charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs, money laundering and perverting the course of justice. A was alleged to be one of the country’s main drug importers and the “supplier of all suppliers.” Following his arrest the Prosecution’s case was that the sale and supply of cocaine in one part of the fell by almost 30 per cent.

Client B was charged with Conspiracy to import 1,000 kilos of pure cocaine. His arrest followed a two -year undercover police surveillance operation. The Crowns case was that the drugs were allegedly being imported from South American countries disguised as packages of meat. A was cleared of importing drugs but pleaded guilty to money laundering.

Client C was arrested in a large scale three-year police investigation. He was said to be a key figure in an international people smuggling ring. Evidence that was critical to the Prosecution’s case was seized by police after they executed search warrants on his premises. BSQ advised that the warrants were technically unlawful. After Judicial review proceedings began, the investigating agency agreed to quash the warrants and pay compensation to C. An application to exclude all material found in the search is ongoing. No charges have been laid against our client to date.
