BSB Solicitors – Because Everyone Matters
Under Investigation and Need Urgent Help?
Facing a criminal investigation is a stressful experience. Taking specialist advice legal is essential to protect your rights.
“Working alongside some of the leading barristers and forensic experts we have a notable track record of successful outcomes and acquittals.”
Our award-winning criminal defence solicitors are experts in dealing with a range of criminal, fraud and regulatory investigations across a wide spectrum.
Cases we have featured in are regularly in the public eye.
Clients we have acted for include public figures, professionals and government officials.
No matter the allegation, every client we act for receives the same standard of professional service, care and attention.
Being Charged With a Crime
People often contact us and tell us that they have been “charged with x or y”. Often they haven’t been charged but they have been questioned by police or contacted by officers inviting them to attend an appointment for an interview.
Some investigations are concluded the day that they are questioned by police, but often they continue for several weeks or even months before a decision is made as to whether an individual should be prosecuted through the courts .
Whether you have been charged or received a postal requisition, you will receive a sheet setting out the offences for which you have been accused of.
Some offences are summary only, which meant that they can only be tried in the Magistrates’ court, the police have a six-month limit within which to bring these cases to court. Other offences which can be tried in both the Magistrates Court or Crown Court are not subject to the same time limits.

“I had no success when l was searching to find a law firm that would bother with my unique case, l was constantly ignored and none bothered to return my calls. I am glad they didn’t as it lead me to find the best lawyer and the barrister at BSB. Chloe and Rabia took my case and fought for me. Chole was extremely supportive and patient through out the journey, Rabia was super confident and strong , both ladies did their absolute best and and we won the case, l am so grateful and can’t thank BSB enough for everything.” December 2018
BSB represented me for what I consider to be the most difficult 9 months of my life. There understanding, support and most crucially legal expertise was of enormous comfort to me. I knew the immense hard work they were putting in would mean my representation was the best available. I would recommend BSB to anyone needing legal representation.
