Hogan Brown Solicitors At Hogan Brown we undertake white collar crime, tax investigations and regulatory work. We adopt an unashamedly old fashioned approach to helping our clients: we believe that hard work and preparation gets results. The firm's lawyers are dedicated to achieving the best possible results even in the most high profile cases. Many lawyers have raw talent, but the difference between winning and losing a criminal defence comes down to time.

Even the most experienced criminal lawyer will fail unless he or she can devote sufficient time to the preparation of the client's defence. The hardest working criminal lawyer can devote only a certain number of hours to their practice each year. By taking on a limited number of cases each year, the firm ensures that their lawyers give their all.

Such orders can be obtained long before sufficient evidence has been gathered to justify a charge or a prosecution. They allow the prosecution to launch a pre-emptive strike against a suspect, paralyzing his everyday business activity. Applications for restraint orders are almost always made without notice to the suspect. In addition, restraint orders often have additional clauses which require the suspect to make full disclosure of his assets within a designated period of time and/or a requirement that the suspect retains his assets in the UK.
