Although this firm is well known for the high profile and extremely serious cases we undertake, you will notice that the names of our clients – the famous, the infamous and the unknown - are conspicuous by their absence here; just as yours would be if you instructed our firm, regardless of the outcome. We act in the way you as a client would want us to act:'Confidentially and Discreetly'.

‘Curse of Brink's-Mat: 25 Years of Murder & Mayhem'
by Wensley Clarkson
“Mr Milner didn't have a close relationship with any of his heavyweight clients, especially the so-called superstar gangsters. He said he'd never been out socializing with them apart from having the occasional sandwich at lunchtime. One retired blagger explained: 'Mr Milner's a real pro. A complete gent. He doesn't have to hang around with the likes of us to understand the criminal mind. The guy's bloody brilliant. If you've got him on side you're about fifty per cent more likely to walk out of court a free man. He's a tasty operator.'
Mr Milner prided himself on always having complete control of a case. That meant deciding which witnesses to call, influencing a counsel's closing speech and occasionally putting his foot down. He was also renowned for picking top barristers with a knack of winning”.
