Saunders Solicitors criminal litigation background distinguishes us from other regulatory lawyers. Many falling under investigation face the very real threat of criminal litigation. A solicitor with in depth knowledge of both regulatory and criminal litigation is invaluable.

If you are subject to investigation contact Saunders Solicitors as soon as possible. We operate a 24 hour arrest line in emergencies or can arrange a voluntary attendance for interviews under caution. Our decades of experience of police station attendances ensure you receive the best advice at an early stage which can significantly affect the outcome of your case. During the investigation we take proactive steps to avoid enforcement action. We can assist you from the outset, by providing written representations during an investigation, negotiating a settlement and appealing a decision. If a prosecution ensues our lawyers have the skill and expertise to robustly defend any action taken, and ensure the best possible outcome for you.
