Lost Boys is committed to donating 20% of our time and resources to assisting individuals or companies who require our support, but are not in a financial position to pay our usual fees. Our pro bono services typically involve our support in:
Advisement on the protection of journalistic sources or confidential informants, including the safeguarding of whistle-blowers
Defence investigations in miscarriage of justice cases (which, due to the Criminal Appeals funding system in the UK, no longer qualify for Legal Aid)
Sexual assault cases, the victim of which is considering a civil or private prosecution
Workplace investigations relating to sexual or other forms of harassment
Wrongful or malicious accusations leading to criminal convictions, dismissals, or reputational damage
If you require our help, please contact us by phone or email. All of our pro bono clients are treated with the same level of professionalism, confidentiality and determination on our behalf.
If you are acting on behalf of a third party, you must provide a statement of their authorisation, in order for us to us to commence our involvement in the case. We are able to provide a copy of this document upon request.
Please consider your own safety in how you contact us. Should you require us to contact or meet you covertly, we are capable of doing this (for example, if there are times or locations that are safest for you, or if you require a cover story for us to re-contact you, please highlight these details in any messages you leave us).
