Private Prosecutions

The right to bring a private prosecution is a long-established legal tenet of access to justice and can offer a preferable and effective course of action.

Should the police fail to pursue an investigation or the Crown Prosecution Service decide not to commence proceedings, a private prosecution can offer victims an opportunity to get their case heard.

We often advise in conjunction with civil proceedings, especially in corporate-related matters, and we are able to take a multi-disciplinary approach together with our civil litigation team to achieve best results.

This is a highly specialised field and we offer practical and clear advice from the outset. Successful private prosecutions can result in defendants facing terms of imprisonment, being ordered to pay compensation and contend with Proceeds of Crime confiscation proceedings in appropriate cases.

We use our extensive experience of criminal litigation to advise on the most favourable investigative steps to take in the first instance, the merits of a successful action and the proper and strategic deployment of evidence towards trial.
