When it comes to drug offences, expert advice, knowledge and a robust, proactive representation must be sought at the earliest possible moment. Lawtons Solicitors is ready and able to help.

Drug smuggling is one of the most complicated areas in the law on drugs, especially as it crosses country borders and can be influenced by different legal jurisdictions.

Lawtons Solicitors will work with you to ensure you are being represented fully and fairly, with an expert team who understands the proceedings on a global scale and can deliver the most favourable outcome possible.

Drug Smuggling & The Law

Drug smuggling is a very specific aspect of the law, which must demonstrate not only the illegal import or export of drugs, but also that it was carried out secretly and without paying any form of taxes across country or state borders.

Due to the seriousness of the crime, investigations are also likely to include investigating bodies such as the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Sentencing is passed by the Crown Court and every case will depend on the classification of drugs smuggled, their street value, global influences and the intention or purpose of the smuggling.

What to do if you are accused of Drug Smuggling?

If you find yourself under investigation for drug smuggling, it is integral to seek the best team of experts early on to explain proceedings with specific regard to your individual case.

At Lawtons Solicitors, we know the earlier we hear from you, the more we can show cooperation with all the bodies involved from the outset, which will be looked upon favourably in sentencing.

We will also ensure we can provide constant advice with regards to search warrants and what is and isn’t viable, as well as providing peace of mind every step of the way that you are in the most capable hands.
