More serious offences are dealt with before the Crown Court, including all cases of serious crime and commercial fraud.

The practice undertakes the detailed preparation of cases before the Crown Court, carefully assessing and considering the prosecution evidence in the form of witness statements and exhibits, and accessing appropriate and relevant unused material.

We obtain our clients detailed instructions on the evidence and advise as to plea, mitigation in guilty pleas and the conduct of a trial. McGregors has an expert team of lawyers with many years experience who undertake this preparatory work.

McGregors also instructs independent Barristers who are selected on the basis of their experience, dedication and commitment to the interests of our clients.

Cases before the Crown Court can take many months, and sometime years, to reach a final resolution, and it is necessary to provide sympathetic advice and support to our clients and their families to assist them in confronting the very difficult issues which can arise in such circumstances.
