Business Crime and Criminal Defence Hub

Welcome to JMW's Hub for Business Crime Advice and Information

If you or your business are under investigation, it helps to have access to high-quality information and guidance. The expert Business Crime and Regulation team at JMW Solicitors recognises that it can be difficult to navigate these processes without expert legal support. You may be unsure which questions you are compelled to answer, what information you are allowed to keep to yourself, what documents or materials you are required to provide and how to avoid self-incrimination when answering questions. After all, whether or not you have done anything wrong, investigating authorities will do everything in their power to extract information from you.

To offer support and guidance through these processes, we have created the JMW Business Crime, Regulatory and Criminal Defence Hub. Within this hub, the experienced criminal and regulatory solicitors at JMW have compiled a wealth of useful guides and resources on a variety of topics spanning the entire criminal justice process. The information here applies to individuals and businesses of all sizes, from sole traders to large corporations. 

While we hope this information will assist you and your business in the face of an investigation, our business crime advice hub cannot replace the formal instruction of your own legal team and the tailored package we can offer. The services of our expert team during the investigation process and any criminal proceedings will ensure you and/or your business are protected, rights are upheld, and the best possible defence is prepared.

Our expertise spans the following aspects of the criminal justice process:

  • The investigation stage
  • Magistrates Court
  • Crown Court
  • Appeal

At JMW, we represent individuals and businesses in some of the largest investigations and prosecutions in the UK, including many cases with an international element. Our broad range of experience ensures we are able to provide a meticulous approach to each case.  Our expert knowledge of the law, coupled with our full-service law firm offering, ensures you receive practical advice from us no matter how complex or convoluted the allegations may be.  

If you have any questions or would like to speak to our team, contact us now on 0345 872 6666 or use our online enquiry form to request a call back.

Search Warrants and Seizure of Property

If an investigating authority attempts to search your premises or seize your property, it is important to ensure that your rights are upheld. Authorities must follow correct procedures - otherwise, the information they seize may not be submitted as evidence. JMW can guide you through this process and prevent your rights from being infringed upon.
