The Crown Court handles all the serious criminal cases. Trials are heard in front of a Judge and Jury.
Once a matter has been transferred to the Crown Court from the Magistrates’ Court, there will be a number of preliminary hearings where the evidence is served and a timetable for any trial date set.
Often the volume of evidence in Crown Court cases is significant and will need to be considered in detail by your legal team. In addition to your case being overseen by one of our lawyers, you will have an advocate instructed, either one of our own experienced Solicitor-Advocates or Barristers or an independent barrister. We routinely work with the most highly regarded barristers and Queen’s Counsel.
