The Crime Team represents a long history of practice in this field of work both in prosecution and defence. It includes a number of practitioners whose work is exclusively crime.
Members of chambers undertake a wide range of criminal cases in both the Crown Court and Magistrates Court, ranging from minor offences to the most serious and complex cases.
Those at the senior end are typically engaged in cases involving offences as diverse as murder, sexual abuse, drugs importation and serious fraud.
