Corporate Manslaughter

Since 2012 there has been a significant rise in Corporate Manslaughter charges being brought against companies. The number of charges has risen by 40%. The charge can be brought where death is caused by management failures.

CM solicitors are equipped with the necessary skills and experience to represent directors from the investigation stage right through to court proceedings including offences arising out of the proceeds of crime act 2002.

Instructing CM Solicitors means that you instruct a legal team not just a solicitor. Your case will be conducted by the director of the fraud and regulatory department, Ben Richardson. He will be assisted by at least two other lawyers plus your Barrister and Queens Counsel.

We believe that having a legal team rather than just a solicitor gives clients complete faith in their representatives and they take great comfort in knowing that they can call and speak to one of a number of lawyers who have in depth knowledge of their case. They take satisfaction knowing they are dealing with experts in their field of criminal law and that a director is personally dealing with their case.

For a no-obligation discussion about your case please contact Ben Richardson, Director and Head of our Criminal Law department on 0800 1444 111, or email him at BenRichardson@cmsolicitors.co.uk. Alternatively, please complete our online form and one of our criminal defence lawyers will be in touch with you within 24 hours.
