The Times has published their list of the Best Law Firms 2022, and Olliers has been commended by its peers and other law firms, in the ‘financial crime & fraud & regulatory’ category.
The Guide states:
Olliers, which has bases in Manchester and London, specialises in criminal defence work focused on “pre-charge engagement” with investigators. Many clients have no experience of the criminal justice system and the firm will often work to avoid a prosecution taking place.
Clients typically include doctors, lawyers, teachers, financial professionals and wealthy individuals. Those represented may face, for example, allegations of a sexual nature or of fraud and regulatory offences.
Recent work includes dealing with allegations of rape or sexual assault against a headmaster, a high-profile solicitor and a first-year degree student. All proceedings were dropped after successful representations against charge.
