Serious violent and sexual crime.

Cases involving serious violence and sexual crime are often some of the most difficult for all those involved.

The cases raise many complex issues of law and novel areas of fact. Barristers best placed to conduct trials of this nature are those who are hardworking and assiduous on the one hand and experienced and astute on the other. Barristers at Crucible are reputed to be some of the best advocates in this field. They recognise that cases falling within this category require diligent preparation from the outset but also require both compassionate and sympathetic handling when dealing with witnesses and defendants alike.
