Lost Boys is highly specialised in Serious Crime Investigation. Drawing from experiences within the police force, we provide our clients with investigative and expert guidance in Criminal Defence Cases and Civil Litigation. Our services may be engaged at any stage, from the initial prosecution disclosure and defence statement to the trial and any subsequent appeals.
A lawyer’s investigative approach can be limited due to the lack of familiarity with the field and the tactics. Our services allow for a strategic in-depth investigation of the case files and circumstances to ensure that our clients’ criminal defence is comprehensive and effective. As ex-covert police detectives with over two decades of experience, we are able to approach our clients with unique legal, investigative and evidentiary expertise that a Defence Solicitor would not possess. Services may include the use of surveillance, the deployment of Covert Human Intelligence Sources, phone and computer examination, or PAS phone-related evidence, among others.
In a similar vein to the long-standing practice of defence investigations in the USA, the demand for defence investigators is increasing within the British legal system due to their intricate knowledge of the inner functioning of the prosecution strategies. Our experts’ policing backgrounds allow for a much deeper and more profound investigation of the case, making us an invaluable asset to add to your criminal defence team.
