We are specialists in dealing with those furth of the jurisdiction but who are charged within the jurisdiction. We have very significant experience in dealing with people who are ex-patriot or who have been visitors to this country and have come to the attention of authorities. It is often very troubling to be met with criminal proceedings whilst one is abroad or alternatively to be a foreigner in a jurisdiction which one does not understand.
We have dealt with clients from the following countries:- United States of America, Canada, Venezuela, Belize, Colombia, Brazil, Russia, Romania, Germany, Ukraine, Poland, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands, Norway, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, China, Pakistan, India, Australia and many more.
We also have significant experience in dealing with people with interpreters, although we have a number of language skills either in-house or at short notice.
