Experienced in political cases
At Hodge Jones & Allen Solicitors we have over four decade’s experience of working on cases with political considerations. We understand the sensitivities of these cases and the political considerations that can arise.
Legally astute lawyers
Our experts consider the complexities of the law. A key feature of the team is its combination of civil and criminal practitioners with human rights law experience who can proactively advise and assist clients on all aspects of their cases. This is important where there is a challenge to a particular power such a search warrant, where assets have been frozen or where there is a human rights challenge that the conduct of the prosecution or investigators breached your right to a fair trial.
Protecting your rights
Our approach is based on years of experience in high profile matters. Protecting our clients interest in the face of well-funded state prosecutions and potentially hostile media coverage is the norm. We seek to protect our clients’ rights to fair trial by pursuing disclosure from the police or prosecution of material that may assist us or undermine the prosecution case.
Ability to review complex and detailed paperwork
Many terrorist cases, particularly where they relate to the commission or acts of terrorism, will have substantial paperwork that consists of tracing suspects via CCTV footage, telephone data, banking information and police observation. Hodge Jones & Allen’s lawyers have expertise in ensuring the correct strategic approach from an early stage, devoting time and resources to ensure that the case is properly conducted with ourselves, experts and specially selected counsel.
Experienced in terrorist funding cases
Cases that involve terrorist funding require specialist skills in terms of tracing assets, considering business relationships or the reasons for money transfers. Our Financial Crime Team provides additional skills. We can review where assets are frozen or seized.
