If a case is too serious to be dealt with by the Magistrates Court, it is heard in the Crown Court.
If your case is committed to the Crown Court, you will be represented by either a solicitor-advocate or a barrister. These are lawyers who will wear formal black gowns and wigs when they are acting on behalf of a client in Court. Hearings in the Crown Court are heard by Judges, and trials are decided by juries.
The procedures in the Crown Court are much more formal than in the Magistrates Court, and there can be long delays before a case is completed once it has been sent to the Crown Court.

We have a team of qualified solicitor-advocates who can represent our clients in the Crown Court, as well as having links to the leading barristers in the country.
