Stokoe Partnership Solicitors is a London & Manchester based multi-disciplinary practice specialising in criminal defence & civil litigation.

Civil Litigation Criminal defence

We consistently attract high profile work, prosecuted by bodies such as the Inland Revenue, HM Revenue & Customs, The Serious Fraud Office and the Department of Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, as well as the Crown Prosecution Service and National Crime Agency.

Our experienced team of lawyers have been involved in many of the leading cases of recent years and our experience is invaluable in representing individuals. We are highly ranked for our criminal defence work and are recognised as a leading firm for general crime, fraud and white collar crime. The Chambers Guide recognises our Firm as a “dedicated criminal defence boutique noted for its expert handling of serious crime cases”, and The Legal 500 UK 2021 Guide describes us as “tough and fearless, one of the leading defence firms in the country” and note we “instil confidence and have a wide range of clients both domestically and, increasingly, internationally”.

Alongside our criminal practice, we also represent individuals and public limited companies facing allegations that include corruption, serious fraud, white collar crime and regulatory issues. Stokoe Partnership Solicitors specialises in defending a wide range of cases, ranging from international frauds involving the United Nations and Foreign Government ministers to large scale “city” frauds.

We have established an international client base as a result of the work we undertake. The relationships we have developed with lawyers and organisations globally means we can ensure access to experts in foreign jurisdictions including Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and the Middle East.

In addition to our criminal practice, we have a strong civil litigation team specialising in a range of matters from injunctive relief claims to heavy international arbitrations. We have close links with leading sets of barristers and pride ourselves on being able to respond immediately to situations requiring court intervention.
