BCL opened its doors at 51 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London in 1991 and has consistently grown throughout the years. With over 300 years of collective legal experience amongst our 13 partners, BCL has become one of the largest and most experienced corporate and financial crime defence teams in the UK, having been instructed in most of the significant investigations conducted by the SFO, HMRC, the FCA and the CMA.
We are equally experienced in advising on the increasing corporate regulatory risk faced by organisations. With particular expertise in relation to fatal/major accidents, we have a specialist team which acts in investigations, enforcement action and prosecutions involving corporate manslaughter, health and safety, fire safety, and environmental protection.
BCL also has a long-established reputation as a market leader in serious and general crime representing individuals across the whole spectrum of criminal matters, from road traffic offences to homicide. Many of our clients are high net worth or high-profile individuals where discretion and reputation management are crucial. We advise clients in the police station, and handle cases in the Magistrates’ and Crown Courts.
