SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
The Very High Cost Case (VHCC) Panel refers to the designation by the Legal Aid Agency (LAA)of the most serious and complex criminal cases with high volume of prosecution evidence and a length of trial estimate of at least 40 days. For many years Forbes Solicitors have been authorised and approved to represent clients facing criminal proceedings which are funded under these arrangements.
Only a limited number of legal firms who are specifically authorised to deal with these types of cases can do so, which can sometimes mean that a case originally handled by one firm of solicitors needs to be handed over to one on the VHCC Panel once the scope of the case becomes clear, as the processes differ from normal cases and involve the preparation of detailed stage plans
If you are being investigated for or prosecuted in respect of serious or complex allegations invoving high volumes of documentary evidence we recommend that you get in touch with our experienced criminal defence team for more information. Call 0800 689 3206.
Very high cost cases for criminal offences such as serious fraud are very complex and usually include tens of thousands of pages of evidence, which is why they require a different approach to a standard defence approach by solicitors.
These types of cases need a large amount of specialist resource to meet the needs of a large scale defence case, with every individual case needing a tailored approach by those with expertise in this specific area of law.
The team at Forbes can assist with cases of this type, to help secure the best possible outcome and to provide expert advice at every stage of the legal process.
