Is Vardags right for your criminal defence matter?

Our criminal defence team acts for professionals and high net worth individuals who are, or who expect to be, under criminal investigation. They are united in their desire to secure justice and have much to lose if the case goes against them. Our clients all pay privately; we do not undertake publicly funded work.

How can Vardags help?

Our criminal defence lawyers cover the full range of criminal defence matters. Our clients are typically in one of the following scenarios:

The police have contacted me to arrange an appointment.

I’ve been accused of a crime and need to protect myself.

I’ve heard that the police are investigating me.

A friend or loved one has just been arrested.

I’ve been charged with a crime and am facing court proceedings.

I’m facing trial for an offence.

I’ve been convicted of a crime but I should not have been convicted or the sentence was unduly harsh.

We are ready to help

If you think you may need our help, please call us right away. At an initial consultation we can give you preliminary advice, make a plan and if necessary discuss options to fund your case.

If you have a non-urgent matter relating to a criminal offence, we offer a free initial consultation for qualifying individuals. Call us on 020 7404 9390 or email us. Our confidential enquiry lines are staffed 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

You may be eligible for a litigation loan

If your spouse controls the family finances, you may be worried about how to find the money for your legal fees during a divorce. But this need not prevent you from accessing the best legal advice to fight for what you deserve. 

Whether you and your spouse built-up your fortune during your marriage, you married someone who already had money or you have had a child with someone with money, it is likely that you are entitled to very significant assets or income. But accessing this wealth now that you are separated may be difficult, restricting your ability to afford the very best legal representation for you and your family during your divorce.

What options are available to fund my case?

If your spouse is not prepared to pay your divorce fees, you may be eligible for a litigation loan. This specific type of lending allows you to secure any assets that you or your partner have, such as your former matrimonial home, against a loan that will cover your legal fees. This loan is then paid back at the end of the case.

A litigation loan is rigorous and transparent, and will grant you access to a top divorce lawyer who will ensure that you get your fair share. Vardags is experienced in securing litigation funding for its high net worth clients and has strong relationships with a select pool of the very best funders around. We also know when best to apply, and exercise careful judgement in determining when to pursue claims.

Vardags are ready to help

Vardags can advise in detail on the options available at your first consultation. We offer a free initial consultation, without obligation, to clients who have family assets greater than £1 million or income of greater than £150,000 per annum. Please call our confidential enquiry line on 020 7205 5792 to arrange your consultation — it’s never too early or too late to take expert legal advice.
