About: Stokoe Partnership is a criminal litigation practice specialising in defending very serious crime. Established in 1994 by Bambos Tsiattalou, who previously practiced as a barrister. It is Bambos’ attention to detail, meticulous case preparation and high-levels of client care that have become the standard and ethos of the practice. This approach has led to them securing large cases, referred not only from previous and existing clients but also from Chambers and other professionals. In order to preserve and build upon their reputation the practice has a policy of employing solicitors to manage cases at every level as opposed to unqualified caseworkers.

The firm consistently attracts work which has been prosecuted by bodies including the Inland Revenue, HM Revenue & Customs, The Serious Fraud Office and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills as well as the Crown Prosecution Service.

Alongside their niche criminal practice they also represent individuals and public limited companies in allegations ranging from corruption, serious fraud ( ‘white collar crime’) and regulatory issues brought by for example Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and Security Industry Authority (SIA).

The firm provides comprehensive advice and assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.
