ITN Solicitors are particularly well known for defending in murder cases. We understand the extraordinary pressures faced by those accused of murder and their families. We also understand that murder or manslaughter cases cannot be defended without exhaustive preparation and expert analysis.
Cases of serious or organised crime pose a particular challenge to defence lawyers. The evidence is complex and will frequently involve covert surveillance. Many such cases involve informers and difficult issues of disclosure. The stakes are invariably high and the pitfalls are many.
Our lawyers can advise in respect of complex financial investigations and prosecutions. We have experience in acting on behalf of companies and their directors and in cases alleging fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, insider dealing and Company Act offences.
