Serious/Complex Crime
Frequently instructed to defend in major, nationally reported criminal trials, Ewing Law is a recognised leader when it comes to serious/complex crime.

With the experience and expertise to deliver in even the most serious, complex and high profile of criminal cases, our practice ranges from murder to large scale drug conspiracies, and from kidnap, blackmail and armed robberies to allegations of a sexual nature, particularly those within the media and sporting sectors. In addition we have a particular and much sought after expertise in the fields of corruption, bribery and money laundering.

With decades of experience to call upon, our team members have been instructed to defend in cases brought by all of the major UK prosecuting bodies, including but not limited to the Crown Prosecution Service, the CPS Special Case Work Unit, The National Crime Agency, the Serious Fraud Office, Her Majesty’s Insolvency Service, the Health and Safety Executive, the Department of Work and Pensions, the Financial Conduct Authority and more. This wealth of experience makes Ewing Law the logical choice for any individual or company subject to investigation by any prosecuting body within the United Kingdom.

We are regularly instructed to defend nationwide, with our reputation in this area of law taking us from London to Newcastle and everywhere in between. In addition, our team members in recent times have worked internationally in states such as Spain, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Cyprus, Ireland, China, Barbados, Philippines and Hong Kong.

Blackfriars Crown Court

R. v. T.

Kingston Crown Court

R. v. M.

Acted alone for one of 16 defendants alleged to have together controlled the two largest brothels in the North of England.
