Kingsley Napley is the leading criminal defence firm in England and Wales. We have a long track record of defending and advising in bribery and corruption investigations, acting for both individuals and corporates.
We advise suspects and witnesses in bribery investigations, whether company internal investigations or those brought by UK agencies such as the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) or National Crime Agency (NCA) and overseas agencies. We regularly represent companies where suspicions of wrongdoing have arisen and conduct internal investigations on their behalf, many with a cross border element. We are a multi-service firm, being able to call on expertise from our employment, dispute resolution and corporate and commercial departments.
Highly sophisticated, astute and supportive we are particularly known for our skill in providing strategic, sensible and practical criminal law advice and for our ability to keep high profile cases out of the public eye. We are adept at navigating the complex regulatory and criminal issues that arise in business crime cases. We are top ranked in Chambers UK and The Legal 500, and have been highlighted for our exceptional work both in the areas of corporate and individual defence. Kingsley Napley is cited in Chambers and Partners as: “the country's premier niche white-collar firm. They're very savvy and understand how the corporate world works" (2017). "I believe their strength lies in their meticulous attention to detail and the intelligence of the individuals employed by that firm. I could not imagine a better law firm" (2018).
