Sexual offences

Expert London solicitors for defending sexual offences

At Janes Solicitors our dedicated team of experienced solicitors specialise in defending individuals accused of serious sexual offences. We understand the sensitive nature of such cases and are committed to providing unwavering support and expert guidance throughout the legal process.

High profile police operations, the ‘Me Too’ movement and emergence of websites such as ‘Everyone’s Invited’ have triggered a sharp increase in prosecutions for sexual offences, sexual abuse and historic sexual offences case in recent years.

Allegations of any form of sexual offence or sexual abuse can be devastating on your reputation, your livelihood and your family. We have a deep understanding of the Sexual Offences Act and the wider legal landscape. We have a strong track record of defending clients wrongly accused of historical offences and we also regularly deal with associated applications for civil orders such as Sexual Risk Orders (SRO) and Sexual Harm Prevention Orders (SHPO).

One of the main issues in allegations of historic sexual offence cases is the reliability of evidence. At Janes Solicitors, we scrutinise evidence carefully and meticulously to ensure you receive the best possible defence.
