Stokoe Partnership Solicitors is regarded as one of the leading firms in the UK for serious crime, and has been for many years. We are recognised by both of the UK’s leading legal directories, The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.
Our expert lawyers are hugely experienced at representing clients charged with robbery and have been involved in some of the biggest and highest profile trials in recent years, including the Tonbridge heist and the Hatton Garden Burglary.
We regularly instruct leading members of the Bar, and ensure that cases are paired with barristers that have the necessary level of expertise and experience in dealing with the offence. We also work with a range of experts (including forensic, scientific and technological experts) to ensure that the prosecution’s evidence is fully tested and any defence is properly advanced.
We also understand the importance of ensuring that our clients and their immediate families are supported and able to speak to their solicitor at any time. We pride ourselves on being able to consistently offer the highest level of service at any time.
We represented three clients in respect of their appeals against conviction and sentence following their convictions for armed robbery in 2009/2010. The original trials were a result of a long and complex police investigation into suspected organised crime in the Leeds area.
We represented a client on the Hatton Garden burglary case, widely reported to be the “largest burglary in the UK history”. The loss was valued in excess of £29million.
