Homicide (Murder and Manslaughter)

A strong team of Queen’s Counsel and experienced Junior Counsel regularly appear in cases of both murder and manslaughter across the Midlands Circuit and nationally.  Members of the team are instructed by both defence solicitors and the Crown Prosecution Service (including the Complex Casework Unit).  Many of the cases undertaken by the team attract national media coverage.

Members of the team have appeared in key Court of Appeal cases dealing with important aspects of murder and manslaughter from the anonymity of witnesses to the availability of partial defences to murder.  The team also possess significant collective experience of homicides involving the deaths of young children and babies.

Whatever the background to the case, members of the team provide strong, focussed advocacy in court together with first rate legal knowledge.  Advice can be provided from the very earliest stages of a case. The team is committed to providing the highest level of service and representation in these demanding cases.
