Our History

BCL Solicitors opened its doors at 51 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London in 1991 and has consistently grown throughout the years. With over 350 years of collective legal experience amongst our 15 partners, BCL has become one of the largest and most experienced corporate and financial crime defence teams in the UK, having been instructed in most of the significant investigations conducted by the SFO, HMRC, the FCA and the CMA.

The BCL practice has also become a market leader in serious and general crime matters representing high profile/high net worth individuals ranging from road traffic offences to homicide and everything in between. We advise clients in the police station, and handle cases in the Magistrates’ Court and Crown Court. Many of our clients are high-profile individuals where discretion and reputation management are crucial.

We are also highly experienced in advising on the increasing regulatory risk faced by organisations and individuals. With particular expertise in relation to fatal/major incidents, we have a specialist team which acts in investigations, enforcement action and prosecutions involving corporate manslaughter, health and safety, fire safety and environmental protection.
