Criminal Law Barristers

From defending and prosecuting serious Crown Court matters to representing the interests of individuals or local authorities in the Magistrates Courts, 15 Winckley Square’s team of criminal law barristers provide a dedicated, expert service to clients across Lancashire.

Members of Chambers are happy to accept instructions in all motoring offences at both legal aid and privately paying rates. This includes first instance prosecutions at the Magistrates' Courts and appeals to the Crown Court in excess alcohol cases, using a mobile telephone whilst driving and speeding cases, particularly when the "totting up" provisions are in issue. In addition, we deal with the more serious offences of dangerous driving and deaths involving the use of a motor vehicle.

In addition, Chambers is highly regarded in the field of regulatory work. Members accept instructions from local authorities and private clients in many areas on an increasingly frequent basis, including:

  • Health and Safety cases
  • Trade Description work
  • Environmental work
  • Intellectual Property Offences
