Brunskill is a law firm that specialises in criminal, fraud and regulatory work. We act for individuals and commercial organisations that are subject to investigations, prosecutions or enforcement proceedings brought by the UK authorities.

From offices in Manchester and London, we represent clients who are located throughout England and Wales.

We are involved in complex, heavyweight and high profile work that requires special expertise and high standards of service. We have been involved in some of the sector’s leading cases over recent years.

All our work is within the fields of:

  • Commercial fraud.
  • Business crime.
  • Complex & general crime.
  • Regulatory enforcement.
  • Professional disciplinary proceedings.

We mainly act in defence of cases brought by the Serious Fraud Office, Financial Conduct Authority, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, Crown Prosecution Service and a wide range of professional disciplinary bodies.


Actions against the police – our commitment to the rule of law

A core element of our practice relates to challenging the unlawful exercise of police or prosecutorial powers. We are staunch defenders of the rights of individuals within the criminal and regulatory framework. Our commitment is to ensure that the wide ranging powers of police forces and prosecution agencies are only used in accordance with the law and that those who operate outside of the law are held to account.


Our Service

Our clients come to us for the best quality advice in circumstances where both reputation and liberty are at stake. We are committed to providing a strong and effective defence of their interests while also supporting them throughout the legal process.

Our principle is to maintain close working relationships with all our clients and we see this as key to the successful representation of them in their cases.
