Defending sexual offence allegations

Our criminal defence solicitors recognise that being accused of any offence is a distressing experience for any individual, even more so when the offence is of a sexual nature.

When facing a sexual offence allegation it is essential that legal advice is sought at the earliest opportunity. Often people accused of sexual offences have no previous experience of the criminal justice system and with careers, reputations and relationships under threat it is important to be guided through the process by a legal specialist.

Our criminal justice team have many years’ experience in this area and are well placed to advise and represent clients facing allegations nationwide. If you have been arrested or are at any stage of criminal prosecution for a sex offence, contact us on 0203 816 1098 alternatively complete our online enquiry form and a member of the team will contact you directly to discuss your situation.

Types of allegation

Our legal experts can advise if you are facing allegations on the full range of sexual offences, including:

The law relating to sexual offences can be complex and challenging and with increased numbers of sexual complaints being reported it is important to have a legal team that will handle the matter with exemplary care and tact.
