New Park Court Chambers has one of the most established and widely experienced criminal teams on the North-Eastern Circuit. With fifty members covering every aspect of criminal law, we are able to service all of our clients needs with strength in depth.

We are regularly recommended in the legal directories and noted in Chambers and Partners 2017 for Crime – ‘Its eminent members offer broad expertise across the full spectrum of criminal proceedings, covering areas such as terrorism, high-profile homicide cases, fraud and sexual offences. Given its formidable reputation, the set routinely attracts instructions in major criminal cases.’   In the Legal 500 2016, Chambers is regarded as ‘one of the leading crime sets on Circuit’, with ‘great strength in depth’.

Criminal law is widely regarded as one of the most contentious and challenging areas often requiring highly skilled advocates with experience of dealing with any number of sensitive and complicated issues. Our specialist criminal team has the wealth of experience capable of handling instructions in any area of criminal law, ranging from offences of homicide, serious sexual offences, fraud and offences of serious violence.

We have a number of advocates who have achieved a place on the Attorney General’s regulatory list. As a result we are often nominated to prosecute cases on behalf of government departments including the Health and Safety Executive, the Food Standards Agency and DEFRA. We also have a number of advocates who have experience in defending in these types of cases.

All members of our team accept instructions in both publicly and privately funded work. Chambers offer competitive rates in all areas of criminal law.
