Persons who have been accused of crimes like fraud, corruption, bribery, domestic violence, traffic offences or drug possession among many others and kept in police custody have the right to defend themselves. During the investigation of a crime or serious offence, an individual can be represented in front of the authorities by our criminal defence solicitors in London who can explain his/her rights and the applicable law in this situation. Even companies involved in a crime investigation by the police can rely on our defence services in UK.

A few aspects about the investigation of a crime in UK

Once the charges have been presented, an individual can be sent to police custody until the first hearing in front of the magistrates. We remind that persons arrested for different crimes have the right to apply for bail, a matter where our defence solicitors in London can help establishing the terms and conditions. Meanwhile, the investigation regards the grounds and the circumstances of the crime, whether there are witnesses and solid evidence. In this case, the prosecutors are the ones who provide to the authorities the proof which sustains the charges, while the police investigate the case.
