Legal Fees

It is the investigation stage – where a case is in its infancy and still being formed – where you can best protect your position. In many cases, a lot of work can be done during the investigation stage to challenge accusations made against you and ensure that charges are never brought.

Legal Aid is available, but is limited to attendance at a police station for a first interview and does not extend to work done before or after you attend a police station. If Legal Aid is not available to you, Cartwright King can offer a range of financial options from competitive hourly rates to an appropriate fixed fee arrangement.

Call or email us today to discuss your options.

We're here for you.

Frequently asked questions.

Cyber crime is an umbrella term for a number of different offences. It refers to crimes that either take place online or where technology is used for, or is the target of, an attack.

The internet has facilitated the rise of computer-based crime, making it one of the fastest growing criminal activities in the UK. Cyber crime is acknowledged as a major international issue.

Cyber crime takes many forms, including computer fraud, identity theft, phishing scams, cyberstalking, online defamation, hacking, internet piracy and file-sharing. 

Cartwright King is able to provide clear and comprehensive advice and guidance in respect of any cyber crime investigation. We understand the issues that arise and have acted on some of the biggest cases prosecuted in the country.

Cyber crime is a serious criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. In the UK, the government views cyber crime as a national security threat and has prioritised funding for the investigation and prosecution of such offences. Law enforcement takes cyber crime very seriously and will make every effort to arrest and prosecute offenders.
