We understand the importance of your case and strive to provide a uniquely-client focused and bespoke service, offering invaluable support and skill in striving for a successful prosecution. Our solicitors can immediately begin building a strong case, keeping you informed each step of the way.

Private prosecution specialists – here to help

Budgetary restrictions have meant that, particularly in recent years, the capability of investigators, prosecutors and criminal courts to deal with criminal offences of all types has been substantially diminished. As a consequence, private prosecution for crimes that would traditionally be prosecuted by the police, Crown Prosecution (CPS) or other public agencies is now more prevalent than ever.

The Private Prosecution Solicitors at Wilford Smith have comprehensive knowledge and specialist expertise when it comes to conducting all types of private criminal prosecutions. We can advise at every stage of your case in respect of:

  • Initial strategy and evidence analysis
  • The possibility of obtaining pre-charge asset freezing under the Proceeds of Crime Act
  • Pre-trial litigation and disclosure of unused material to the Defence
  • Court proceedings and trial
  • Confiscation proceedings under the Proceeds of Crime Act and any other ancillary Orders if a conviction is obtained

We act for individuals who have been the victims of a broad range of crime and our skills in advocacy and litigation mean that we are excellently placed to support you throughout the progress of your case. Our experience providing representation in the criminal courts means that we are experts when it comes to testing the quality of a case and exposing flaws.
