All criminal allegations require the expertise of specialist lawyers; but perhaps none more so than when they relate to allegations of terrorism.
Offences under the Terrorism Act 2000, The Terrorism Act 2006, The Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, The Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, and The Counter-Terrorism Act 2008; are understandably serious, and even the slightest accusation of wrongdoing can have a devastating impact on the lives of those accused and their family.
Expertise in this area of law is especially important as the Police have special additional powers for these kinds of investigations meaning that unless your solicitor and barrister have experience they are likely dealing with some of the issues that arise for the first time.
As with all criminal proceedings it is important to get the advice right at the police station to provide you with the best chance of a successful defence should the matter go to court. Cases of this nature usually involve large amounts of complicated and technical evidence and so it is important to have the very best expertise on hand to provide the right advice. Having the right combination of advocate and strategic legal tactician available is essential at the very earliest stages.
Our advocates and litigators have a wealth of experience in dealing with these very complex and sensitive cases and are involved from arrest to trial so if you, or a friend or family member have been arrested or charged with any terrorist related activity do not hesitate to contact us. We act for individuals in high profile and complex cases who have been investigated or charged under the Terrorism Act and associated legislation, in London, Birmingham, Manchester and across the UK for offences ranging from accessing terrorism related material online, funding terrorism abroad, being a member of a proscribed group, acquiring weapons for use in attacks, through to attempted murder..
We also often instruct the additional expertise of leading specialist Counsel and QC’s (where appropriate) to robustly defend our clients and to prepare their cases thoroughly, analytically, and with the utmost care.
If you are under investigation by the Police for any terrorism offence; or have been charged with such an offence, contact your nearest Reeds office, or alternatively request a contact through the form on the right hand side of this page.
