Serious Drugs Offences
Serious Drugs offences usually involve the importation or supply of illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, amphetamines and cannabis. Synthetic drugs have now been added to that list.
The importation or supply of large quantities of banned drugs may attract the investigative skills of Customs (HMRC), or one of a number of specialist UK agencies, including the National Crime Agency (the “British FBI”) and the Police. The investigative techniques used by them, coupled together with their legal powers, can be and often are far reaching and highly intrusive. Sentences can be heavy.
If faced with investigation or arrest for a serious drugs offence, ABV have a number of highly skilled, very experienced specialist lawyers available to advise and assist. Issues can be complex. Topics which may arise include jurisdiction, overseas evidence, investigatory practices and disclosure. Such cases are often linked to money laundering and confiscation proceedings.
ABV are market leaders in dealing with these types of cases. We are able to provide relevant advice, gained through many years of experience, on how to deal with all matters that flow from such an investigation.
