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. Sentencing for such crimes in England and Wales range from financial penalties to custodial sentences

Many people accused of these types of offences have never been involved in the criminal process before. We will guide you every step of the way, providing hands-on, expert and commercially sensitive legal advice in this complicated area of law.

If you are facing charges of business crime or misconduct, early legal advice is strongly recommended to make sure you have a robust legal defence to protect you, your reputation and your business.

Motoring offences

Prosecution for a motoring offence can lead to the loss of your driving licence, a fine and even a prison sentence. If you have been charged with a motoring offence, don’t ignore the problem as it won’t go away. Get specialist legal advice as soon as possible.

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.

Drug offences

If you have been accused of producing, importing, distributing, supplying or possessing drugs, we can help. Drugs charges often lead to jail sentences and criminal convictions, so it is crucial that you have the best legal team on your side.

Having represented clients facing charges relating to class A to class C drugs, we have substantial experience mounting successful defence cases.

Serious crime

Serious crime includes allegations of murder, rape and other violent offences, certain drug offences, corruption, terrorism and people smuggling.

You and your family will need significant help in these circumstances. We can represent you at the police station and through the courts, to ensure the best possible result for you. With a straightforward, jargon-free approach, we make sure you always understand what is happening and the options available to you.

If you have been accused of a serious crime it is vital to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible.
