Investigations & Confiscations

Private prosecutions are becoming increasingly common in England and Wales, with individuals and businesses choosing this means of achieving justice if traditional prosecuting authorities are unwilling to pursue the case or as a cheaper alternative to civil proceedings. All cases require evidence, and we provide a comprehensive service, from investigation to confiscation. Our specialist private prosecution lawyers are on hand to provide expert guidance and support to individuals, companies, organisations and charities to prosecute on their behalf.

We pride ourselves on our reputation for uniquely client-focused legal support – our lawyers will take the time to meet with you and discuss your case in detail, delivering exceptionally proactive advice to protect your interests in both the short- and long-term. Our attention to detail and skills in evidence analysis enable us to develop strategies to prosecute on your behalf.

Whatever the circumstances of your case, speak to a member of our team immediately to arrange an initial appointment. Contact us on 0808 164 1349 or complete our online contact form.

Private prosecution confiscations

A conviction following a private prosecution will result in the same punishment as if the case had been brought by the police or the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). As such, there is scope for prosecutors to seek a Confiscation Order which, if granted, gives the court the power to confiscate assets that they believe have resulted from criminal activity. Confiscation proceedings are not automatic, and the prosecution will have to apply for the proceedings to be opened and adjourned at the end of the case.

The Private Prosecution Solicitors at Wilford Smith will work tirelessly to obtain a Confiscation Order following a conviction.  Confiscation is a useful means of deterring criminals; not only do they face a criminal conviction but they also lose their assets.
