1KBW has maintained a reputation for excellence in criminal law, both in London and nationally. Our criminal law practitioners are specialists with a wealth of experience, from junior counsel to eminent Queen’s Counsel.

Our expertise includes: general crime (including murder and serious sexual and drugs offences), professional disciplinary tribunals (especially before the GMC), fraud and corporate/financial crime, court martial and judicial review. Our members have experience of representing clients at all levels of the criminal justice system.

We undertake both legal aided and privately paid work, and several members of the group are qualified to conduct work on a direct access basis.

The expertise of criminal law barristers that work within 1KBW also complements other fields of work done by members of chambers in cases in which there is a cross-over between those fields of work.

If you would like to discuss your requirements with one of 1KBW’s Criminal Law barristers then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our clerking team who will be more than happy to assist with your enquiry.
