Committed to Criminal Defence

Following the recent government announcement of a further national lockdown we write to inform all of our clients that during this new lockdown period we will continue to provide a full and comprehensive service to all of our clients. However in order to comply with the government guidelines we confirm that until December 2nd we will be seeing clients in the office only if absolutely necessary.  Anyone attending the office will be expected to observe the now normal social distancing and handwashing rules. It is anticipated that most meetings with our clients and stakeholders can be held via Zoom or Skype. Our switchboard will remain open as will our emergency after hours service.  Our lawyers will therefore remain contactable in the normal way.  We remain (as always) open for business.   We are grateful to you all for your patience during this difficult time and hope that the situation can improve quickly so that life can return to normal again for us all.                                                   Shearman Bowen & Co 2nd November


We have a passion for defending our clients’ rights and have a track record of success at every level. And we’ve spent years learning and understanding what our clients value the most, so we know exactly what our clients want from us.
