Overview of Practice
Lawrence has focussed his practice on defence advocacy. He has in the past prosecuted general crime for the CPS and the Serious Fraud Office in serious and complex cases. His defence work spans all areas of crime.
Lawrence prides himself on having time for all those he represents and recognises the pressures on solicitors and lay clients alike. The key to defending successfully is taking the extra step with those he represents and taking time to not only give advice but ensuring that the complexities of the criminal process are well understood by the client.
Lawrence has represented persons charged with all manner of criminal allegations. He has represented those charged with the serious allegations of murder, both leading and as junior counsel, rape and other serious sexual assault.
Lawrence regularly defends in allegations of fraud and financial misconduct in the Crown Court.
Lawrence is well able to deal with cases involving the very often complicated issue of confiscation of assets as it affects an increasing number of cases.
