5KBW is ‘a strong set with excellent sexual offence specialists’. - Legal 500 2016
Chambers enjoys an unparalleled reputation when it comes to the prosecution and defence of sexually motivated crime. Cases of this nature can be amongst the most difficult but the vast experience of members dealing with complainants that are very vulnerable or have serious disabilities or are very young or who complain many years/decades after the event, places our set at the very top.
Chambers have many CPS RASSO accredited advocates who are regularly instructed to provide cogent and expeditious advice at the very earliest stage and then successfully see the case through to completion. Cases include those involving child cruelty, internet offending, child abduction, stranger rape and serial rape.
Members are frequently instructed privately, to defend professional and high profile individuals who benefit from the dedicated and committed service provided by Chambers, which has led to our set being recognised nationally as leaders in this field.
