Stokoe Partnership Solicitors is regarded as one of the leading firms in the UK for serious crime, and is 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 a wide range of sexual offences including:

 

  • Rape
  • Sexual assaults
  • Prostitution and trafficking offences
  • Historic child sex abuse
  • Grooming
  • Possessing or creating indecent images online

 

We regularly instruct leading members of the Bar, ensuring cases are handled by barristers with the necessary level of expertise and experience in dealing with the offence. We have good working relationships with a wide range of experts (including medical, psychiatric, forensic, scientific and technological experts) to ensure that the prosecution’s evidence is fully tested and that any defence is properly advanced.

We understand the particularly sensitive nature of sex cases and help clients with practical concerns as to reputational damage, as well as demonstrating their innocence in Court.

We understand the importance of having access to your solicitor at any time and we ensure our clients and their immediate families are supported throughout the process, priding ourselves on consistently being able to offer our highest level of service whenever we might be needed.

 

Notable cases

We successfully represented an Albanian national prosecuted for rape. Our client was in the UK illegally, and when first questioned (prior to our involvement) denied knowing the complainant notwithstanding there was DNA evidence to the contrary. At trial our client put forward the defence of consensual sex and was acquitted.


We successfully represented a city broker accused of rape. At trial he maintained he had engaged in consensual sex with the complainant and alleged that the complainant had lied to her partner and proceeded with the prosecution against him to maintain the lie. Our client was acquitted of all charges.
