Assault and Violent Crime

Members of chambers are regularly instructed to prosecute and defend all levels of violent crime. This ranges from complex gang related street attacks to many of the simpler factual disputes to trouble the courts, it can also cover cases of great scale (such as a multi-handed football related violent disorder), complexity (where, for example, there is a conflict of expert evidence) and sensitivity (as in a domestic incident in which children are called to give evidence).

Whether in the Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court, members of chambers have experience of dealing with the full range of offences and issues that can present themselves in the context of an allegation of violence.
