Cybercrime Solicitors

Cybercrime is a term that encapsulates any criminal activity using computers or the internet. It covers many different areas of criminal activity and is now an increasing feature of prosecutions commenced by most prosecuting agencies.

As technology advances at a rapid rate, so does the potential for cybercrime and its increasing appearance in investigations and prosecutions. The rate of advance in technology only accelerates its deep complexity and potential for involvement in most allegations investigated by prosecuting agencies.

This complexity means it’s also vital to work with lawyers who are specialists in the field. We’ve been involved in countless cases that have featured cybercrime and successfully defended individuals and corporates in investigations and prosecutions with a cybercrime element.

    Frequently asked questions

    Can I be extradited if I’m accused of cybercrime?

    Other states are often requesting the extradition of individuals from the UK to face charges relating to offences that involve cybercrime. Often a defence objection to such an extradition request will centre round the cybercrime aspects. In this regard, we have one of the UK’s leading extradition departments who can advise you on the international element of a cybercrime case.

    Are cybercrime investigations limited to one country?

    Quite often any sort of alleged cybercrime perpetrated using a computer over the internet goes beyond international borders and, to that end, advice is required from experts on mutual legal assistance and extradition. We have the criminal defence, financial crime and extradition knowledge and experience to guide you through this.
