How can we help you?

Private prosecutions can be brought by any individual or company, often in relation to allegations of fraud that the police do not have the time or inclination to pursue.

Recent examples of the types of private prosecutions in which we are involved are:

  • The prosecution of business partners who defrauded an associate of approximately £1m.
  • The prosecution of a rogue builder who carried out shoddy work without the proper insurance.
  • The prosecution of a company that ripped off a supplier by obtaining work for which it was unable to pay.
  • The prosecution of an individual for sexual offences.

Private prosecutions are complex, and should not be undertaken lightly. Sometimes we work with other firms in order to ensure that the right expertise is available.
