We want to achieve the best possible results for our clients. At every stage of a criminal or regulatory investigation, or subsequent proceedings, being proactive can often positively affect the result for the client. We do this by reviewing each matter individually and advise tactically using a holistic approach.
If you are required to attend for an interview under caution at a police station, we can assist.
If you have been contacted by the police, we can:
- Arrange for you to attend at a mutually convenient time;
- Attend to ensure you are appropriately represented;
- Make representations to prevent you being arrested, which can have serious potential professional and travel ramifications;
- Make representations, should you be arrested, to ensure that any bail conditions imposed are reasonable; and
- Advise as to any action we can take to affect the outcome.
If you, or someone you know, has been arrested, we are available to attend the police station at any time. We are contactable 24/7 on 0207 698 4468. We can:
- Attend to ensure you are appropriately represented for interview under caution;
- Enquire into the circumstances and necessity of arrest and make relevant representations;
- Ensure that between arrest and detention in custody, the police have complied with the relevant guidelines;
- Make representations, to ensure that any bail conditions imposed are reasonable; and
- Advise as to any action we can take to affect the outcome, including making representations at the police station as to the decision to charge.
It is often possible to affect the outcome of an investigation before a decision to charge has been made. Following an interview under caution at the police station, on a case by case basis, we can collate a persuasive package of material to be submitted to the investigating police officers and CPS reviewing lawyers, thereby encouraging those investigating to explore all options, including:
- Decisions not to charge;
- Requesting an alternative disposal (including a diversion, such as a caution or referral to the Youth Offending Team) be considered; and
- Suggesting alternative, more suitable charges.
