People arrested and asking for The Johnson Partnership can now rest-assured that they will be receiving an even prompter service whatever the time of day or night.  The Johnson Partnership’s new Night Owl rota, covering the Nottingham, Derby, Chesterfield, Mansfield, Doncaster, Scunthorpe and Barnsley solicitors’ offices will ensure that double the number of people are on call throughout night times, weekends and Bank Holidays to advise clients in person wherever they are arrested.

In addition, clients required to answer police bail at anti-social times can rely on a police station advisor from The Johnson Partnership to be available come what may.

The Night Owl rota will be staffed by police station advisors, new solicitors and time-served duty solicitors alike.  However major or minor the matter you must feel free to ask for The Johnson Partnership.  Clients will be able to say to the police with confidence that Johnsons will be there in a jiffy!

During recent months, The Johnson Partnership’s Fraud and White Collar Crime Department has been looking after clients nationwide.

As well as our local crown courts in Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester, Derby, Lincoln and Birmingham, you might expect to find The Johnson Partnership solicitors in regular attendance at Southwark Crown Court or one of the other Greater London Fraud Centres.

At the moment, we find ourselves defending Revenue & Customs prosecutions in Preston, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Ipswich, Sheffield, Manchester and Hull.

With the growth in prosecutions by non-police and non-Revenue & Customs agencies, we have found an increased call on our White Collar Department’s specialist assistance.

Joint teams dealing with the white collar crime in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire often share staff and expertise to ensure the best service for clients, wherever they are required to appear.

We have noticed an increase in the number of clients being visited at their homes or places of work to be interviewed on a “voluntary basis” which again has necessitated staff being available in some of the most unlikely places.  Staff have recently attended lengthy interviews at the offices of their local quarrying and mining operator which are thirty miles or so from the nearest police station.

Rest-assured that wherever you are interviewed, bailed or summonsed, The Johnson Partnership can have the right person on hand to give experienced and discreet advice.

We are delighted to announce the arrival of Jenny Bordley with The Johnson Partnership’s White Collar Business Defence and Fraud Team.  With eight years’ experience of higher court work Jenny Bordley has been recruited in the safe knowledge that she brings to the Department an all-seeing eye and a meticulous attention to detail.

The ever expanding Department currently has matters before Crown Courts in Newcastle upon Tyne, Leeds, Sheffield, Liverpool, Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Cardiff, Peterborough, Southwark, Croydon, Lewes, and the Old Bailey.  With a truly nationwide practice, The Johnson Partnership’s fraud team is delighted to have the skill and experience that Jenny brings.

With a large scale Boiler Room fraud, two enormous Crash for Cash cases, two multi-million pound mortgage frauds, a publishing fraud, internet piracy and Trademark infringement matters, as well as a HMRC, OFT and SFO prosecutions, our Nottingham based team are not only working out of The Johnson Partnership offices in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Yorkshire and Humberside, but also sharing premises with associated firms in Liverpool, London, Cardiff, and Newcastle.  It is not necessarily true that you can join The Johnson Partnership and see the world, but you certainly can spend time in all four corners of the jurisdiction.

Either way, The Johnson Partnership and Adrian Langdale come out ahead of the rest!

For the past fifteen months a series of cases have been held in the North East, centering around claims, which are alleged to be fraudulent, farming on non-existent or greatly exaggerated road traffic accidents.

Throughout a lengthy series of trials a substantial number of those charged have either pleaded guilty or been convicted.

The Johnson Partnership Fraud Department, headed up by Aaron Watson-Weinberg, with support from David Henson and Digby Johnson, has been the moving force behind one of the most spectacular acquittals.

In spite of representing someone described as “a main player” by the Crown Prosecution Service, The Johnson Partnership were able to sift through a veritable room full of papers to help Star Counsel Adrian Langdale to persuade a long-suffering and hard-working Newcastle upon Tyne jury that our client was not tainted by the dishonesty which had infected others.

Cases of this sort are immensely complicated and difficult to marshall.  The Johnson Partnership Fraud Department now has a track record which will stand up to the closest scrutiny.  Its recent victory is a clear demonstration of what can be achieved by someone who knows what they are doing and has a clear route map to victory, even in the face of apparently overwhelming odds.

A Regulatory Specialist for The Johnson Partnership.

From 1st January 2010 we have been pleased to include among our team at The Johnson Partnership, Mr John Wilford.

After many years as a Partner at an established North Midlands firm, John has agreed to head up our Regulatory Team.

Increasing number of clients face difficulties either in the courts or in front of Regulatory Bodies, even though they have never come face to face with a police officer nor a member of the Crown Prosecution Service.

Disciplinary proceedings by professional bodies, prosecutions by local governments, central government and European agencies, proceedings initiated by HM Revenue & Customs, the Serious Fraud Office, the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency, the Environment Agency, the Security Industry Authority, the Health & Safety Executive and endless Trading Standards departments fall well within the remit of John and his team.

Working in both Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, John is able to provide top quality local advice to clients either at our offices or at their own premises.

An added bonus for us all has been the chance to discover that John is one of the most friendly, approachable and entertaining people we have ever had the pleasure to work with.
