Private Crime Prosecutors

Our London-based solicitors & barristers are paid by our clients to privately prosecute criminal misconduct on behalf of individuals, businesses and government organisations. Our team of highly experienced prosecutors are all legally qualified in England and Wales with full rights to appear before the highest criminal courts such as the Old Bailey.

The ‘Private Prosecution Service’ (PPS instead of CPS) is lead by privately paid lawyers, including Leading Counsel, that deliver expert technical criminal procedure knowledge, the utmost expertise, top state prosecution contacts, strong negotiations skills and respected criminal law advice. This can make a pronounced difference in criminal or civil proceedings and subsequent tracing, compensation, confiscation, custodial penalties or enforcement.

Why Pay Privately for Prosecution?

Usually the relevant law enforcement authority the Police Force and/or the Crown Prosecution Service (the CPS) have declined to investigate or bring a prosecution on behalf of the Queen (the Crown). Often this is not because the prosecution itself is not worthy but because of the need for the Police / Crown to prioritise financial resources especially non-violent financial crime which can be classed as a ‘civil matter’.

A private prosecution can often result in what would be lengthy civil action being settled quickly with the wrongdoer party threatened with a criminal summons agreeing to repay monies or return valuable assets.

The PPS is one of the United Kingdom’s only boutique law practices that specialises in all aspects of private prosecution and related corporate criminal investigations. Few legal firms operating in the UK have our level of expertise in this emerging area. We can assess your case carefully at the outset and help you decide on a financial recovery plan as well as obtaining justice where you or your business has been wronged.

We are the only boutique law practice specialising in private prosecution that incorporates both barristers and solicitors. Situated in the Honourable Society of Middle Temple (one of the four Inns of Court), adjacent to the Royal Courts of Justice and short walk from the Central Criminal Court (Old Bailey).
