Organised Crime

Chambers enjoys an unparalleled reputation in the defence of allegations of serious and organised crime, recognised nationally and internationally for providing advice and representation of the highest quality in the most serious high-profile criminal trials.

Outstanding advocacy coupled with the provision of considered, sensitive and perceptive legal advice are the hallmarks of our approach. The unrivalled breadth of experience that our senior practitioners possess ensures that those charged with the most serious offences can expect rigorous and fearless representation of the highest quality.

Members of Chambers have been instructed in many of the leading and significant criminal trials of the last decade that cross the spectrum of organised crime, this includes cases investigated by the National Crime Agency, Trident and Border Force. Our clients range from international financiers to long-standing gang members.

Mountford Chambers were instructed in the £53million Tonbridge Securicor robbery and regularly appear in the growing number of cases of organised moped gang robberies. Most recently, chambers were instructed to represent those convicted of attempting to rob the Arsenal football duo.

Chambers have been instructed in large scale drug conspiracies and importations being tried across the country, often involving multi-jurisdictional investigations and disclosure issues.
Chambers are at the forefront of the developing line of prosecutions involving modern slavery and human trafficking. This often involves associated criminality such as brothel keeping and labour exploitation.

We regularly appear in complex money laundering prosecutions that arise from drug supply, robberies, and slavery.
