Police Law

We have acted for police forces for over 35 years, dealing direct and through insurers and loss adjusters. Our integrity and track record make us the advisers of choice for a number of police forces throughout the UK.

Specialist advice for police clients

We advise on a wide range of issues including misfeasance in public office, malicious prosecution, assault and false imprisonment claims. We have considerable experience of acting for police clients in the defence of class actions involving multiple claims and applications for Judicial Review on matters of policing policy. We also represent police forces at inquests concerning death following police contact.

We have experience of representing our clients in the County Courts and High Court in responding to claims for compensation and the Court of Appeal and the former House of Lords in respect of matters of principle or points of law.

 

Our knowledge of internal processes

 

Our police team has extensive experience and familiarity with the internal processes and procedures used by police forces. This enables us to identify key issues quickly and effectively, saving our clients both time and money. We are also able to apply our knowledge of police processes to assist witnesses and officers to understand the civil process and how it differs from the criminal processes.
