Defending Drugs Cases

Ensure the Best Legal Defence with Berkeley Square Solicitors


Drug offences are treated extremely seriously in the UK. A conviction for even the most minor drug possession offence can result in a criminal conviction that can have career ending consequences.

At Berkeley Square Solicitors we have extensive experience in defending individuals accused of drug related offending across the spectrum from allegations of possession and low level supply to some of the largest drug trafficking cases ever tried in the UK.

BSQ partner Goran Stojsavljevic is recognised as one the leading criminal practitioners in this field. Goran is regularly instructed in high profile, multi-defendant drugs trafficking cases with an international dimension. He appears in courts all over the country. A tenacious litigator with a charismatic presence, he has a reputation for quickly digesting large volumes of evidence to identify the key problem areas upon assuming conduct of a case.

Berkeley Square Solicitors also has a formidable recent track record in criminal appeals for drug related matters. Instructed after conviction, BSQ secured a substantial reduction in sentence in an industrial scale cannabis production operation - the "largest seen by the Bench" in the Court of Appeal in November. In a case related to the seizure of 33lb of cocaine a BSQ client had his sentence substantially reduced in September. Both cases were conducted by Goran Stojsavljevic.
