Crime

Criminal practitioners at 7BR have been providing high quality advocacy and advisory services for more than 60 years.  The excellence of their work has established 7BR as a pre-eminent criminal set, with an enviable reputation nationally and globally.

Members of the criminal team practice in all areas of criminal law including:

  • Murder and serious violent offences
  • Serious sexual crime
  • Terrorism
  • Complex Fraud and Corruption
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Regulatory breaches

Members of the team are frequently instructed to represent the prosecution and defence at all stages of the criminal process, from compulsory investigatory interviews and pre-charge advice to appellate work.  The team deals with cases of gravity, complexity and sensitivity.

Our criminal team has extensive experience of offshore work and cases involving multiple jurisdictions.  Members have appeared in other common law jurisdictions from Hong Kong to the West Indies and have advised foreign citizens, states and governments and multi-national businesses in cases of homicide, corruption, fraud and money laundering.

Our pedigree, reflected in the number of former members who have been appointed to very senior judicial posts, including a Lord Chief Justice, has enabled us to build a team of the highest quality in strength and depth.
