Business crime and professional conduct_

Allegations of fraud, money laundering, false accounting, fraudulent trading and professional misconduct can be damaging on a personal and professional level.

At Beswicks Legal, we provide hands-on, expert and commercially sensitive legal advice in this complicated area of law, offering a robust legal defence to help protect you, your reputation and your business.

With many of our clients enjoying an excellent reputation, having never been involved in the criminal process before, we understand the importance of a professional response.

With sentencing for such crimes in England and Wales ranging from financial penalties to custodial sentences, if you are facing charges of business crime or misconduct, early legal advice is strongly recommended.

Serious crime_

Serious crime includes allegations of murder, rape and other violent offences, certain drug offences, corruption, terrorism and people smuggling (amongst others). If you have been accused of a serious crime it is vital to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible.

At Beswicks Legal we can help you and your family during this difficult time. We can represent you at the police station, and through the Courts, to ensure the best possible result for you.

Drug offences_

If you have been accused of producing, importing, distributing, supplying or possessing drugs, Beswicks Legal can help.

Having represented clients facing charges relating to class A to class C drugs, we have substantial experience mounting successful defence cases. However, with drugs charges often leading to jail sentences and a criminal conviction, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible.

Motoring offences_

At Beswicks Legal, we have significant experience helping individual and business clients on all aspects of road traffic law, from speeding and traffic light offences, to driving under the influence and death by dangerous driving.

With prosecution in such cases often leading to the loss of driving licences, fines and even prison sentences, if you have been charged with a motoring offence, it is crucial to seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible.
