We have unrivalled experience and knowledge of the law relating to sex workers and we are acknowledged as the only experts in the UK on the law of obscenity and obscene publications.

We have also advised a major university on the legality of its art collection and businesses on the contents of their websites.

Featured cases

R v Peacock

Our client was selling hardcore gay videos and was prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act. In a high-profile trial, a partner persuaded a jury that the graphic material was not likely to ‘deprave and corrupt’. Our client was acquitted.

R v Walsh

Police found a number of sado-masochistic photographs on our client’s computer which they claimed were extreme images contravening the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act. We called expert evidence to the contrary. Mr Walsh, a successful barrister, was acquitted and is now back in practice.

R v HM

Our client was a successful businesswoman who ran an escort agency. She called police when one of her employees was attacked and found herself being prosecuted under out-of-date law relating to prostitution and money laundering. We mounted complex legal arguments about the unfairness of the case. Although she was finally convicted of some charges, the arguments we put forward secured her a very lenient sentence.
