Position

Laurence Grant is a consultant solicitor and specialises in a range of criminal defence matters including murder and attempted murder; GBH and other assault matters; serious fraud; conspiracy to smuggle drugs; people trafficking; armed robbery and blackmail. He also has extensive experience in handling more niche areas such as confiscation and motoring.

During his career he has investigated cases investigated and prosecuted by the NCA, HMRC, Serious Fraud Office, UK Borders Agency, Economic Crime Units, DWP, Local Authorities, Trading Standards and the SOCA. Since 1995, Laurence has represented clients at the police station, recognising that informed and intelligent advice at the station can make or break a case.

Having represented clients in some of the most serious MTIC prosecutions of the last decade, Laurence is recognised as a Grade A Fee Earner by the Complex Crimes Unit.

In 2012 along with his colleague, Laurence was responsible for establishing a dedicated Proceeds of Crime and Fraud Unit. This resulted in Duncan Lewis Solicitors being recognised as one of the leading providers of advice and representation in this highly specialised area. The unit represents clients nationwide and particularly focuses on proceedings where the Crown seeks multi-million pound benefit figures.

Laurence was admitted as a solicitor in 1997 and become a consultant and joined Duncan Lewis in 2008.
