Criminal Prosecution & Defence

Our criminal prosecution and defence team has unmatched experience in both prosecution and defence work involving a range of serious offences.

Four of the firm’s Jersey Advocates are Crown Advocates, undertaking the most serious prosecution work on behalf of the HM Attorney General in Jersey. We were involved in the first prosecution for a breach of Jersey AML regulations, we have prosecuted and defended many major fraud cases in Jersey, and we have been involved in many major prosecutions for homicide, serious sexual offences and drug offences.

Money Laundering and Regulatory Offences

Baker & Partners defended the first prosecution in Jersey for breach of the anti-money-laundering (AML) regulations.

The firm has since advised in numerous cases where such prosecutions were a risk. It has been instructed by the Attorney General to advise on and pursue  prosecutions for breach of the AML regulations. See also the regulatory page.

The firm has acted and advised in a number of cases in which assets have been the subject of a “no consent” from Jersey’s Financial Intelligence Unit, resulting in a potentially indefinite informal freeze of the funds.

Fraud and corruption offences

The firm has been involved in the prosecution or defence of many major fraud prosecutions in Jersey over the last twenty years and more, building on experience at the English Bar.


Homicide, serious sexual offences and drug offences

Baker & Partners has acted in most of the murder prosecutions in Jersey in recent years for prosecution or defence. The firm advised on and conducted the prosecutions in the historic child abuse investigation and regularly acts in sex offence cases.
