Initiation of Criminal Proceedings
Unlike foreign jurisdictions, in Pakistan the complainant is at the helm of affairs in most of the criminal offences. Usually law is set into motion with a complaint to the concerned police station, resulting in registration of a criminal case in the shape of a First Information Report (FIR). The Courts are also vested with special powers to order registration of a criminal case in the event the police, for some reason or another, refuse to register a criminal case of an aggrieved person.
Approaching the court in such situations has secured us the desired results in innumerable cases in the recent past. We pursue the matter right from the beginning, ensuring an effective and fruitful investigation, securing the arrest of all those nominated in the FIR and taking your case to its logical conclusion.
Private Criminal Complaints
Proving your case without the help and assistance of the police is difficult, but not necessarily impossible. Reluctance and refusal on the part of the local police to redress your grievance is not an unusual phenomenon. This mostly happens when your opponent is well connected and exercises influence on the police, making prosecution difficult. The Criminal Procedure Code, in the shape of a private complaint, has provided an alternative remedy for such situations; the option is equally good and effective. Our chamber has vast experience in scenarios where trust and confidence in police was lost and the desired results were achieved through private prosecution.
Criminal intimidation, threats and harassment activities are treated as serious offences under Pakistani Law. Vast powers exist with the Justice of Peace to ensure the well-being of citizens by giving necessary directions to the police. Our chamber has provided timely relief for many victims of harassment, ensuring their safety and rights guaranteed under the Constitution of Pakistan.
We realize the importance of getting bailed out in a criminal matter. Regardless of the nature of offence, our struggle continues till a court room victory is announced in favour of our client. We provide representation to both the complainant and the accused charged in all kind of bail matters. Pre-arrest, post arrest, anticipatory bails are matters that fall within our expertise. We provide representation from the Magistrates court to the highest forum throughout the country.
Adopting the right course of action, coupled with a planned and well thought-out strategy, plays a pivotal role behind every successful trial. We strongly believe in adopting an aggressive approach when the matter is ripe for trial. Cross examination is the most effective tool to tarnish the opponent’s case and is our main strength. With endless hard work, we have successfully conducted hundreds of trials before the magistrates and sessions judges. From the most minor to the most complex, we have a high success rate of securing “not guilty” verdicts.
Denial of relief at the court of first instance is a cause of concern for most clients. Enormous experience of advocacy in the appellate court has earned our senior lawyers tremendous recognition from matters ranging from bail matters to murder & narcotics appeals. We offer dedicated and aggressive representation before the High Court and Supreme Court of Pakistan and regularly undertake both prosecution and defence appeal work. Our recent representation in some high profile criminal cases has further added to our repute.
We are fully aware of the pivotal role played by criminal investigation conducted by the police; this ultimately has a direct impact on the outcome of the case. Realizing its importance and sensitivity, we are able to avail the services of trained and experienced investigating officers who offer full assistance and guide our clients in the right direction, ensuring proper and effective investigation.
The tasks undertaken and services provided by efficient and expert investigators have earned us remarkable acknowledgment and appreciation by our clients for whom we regularly provide confidential requested services. Our trusted and reliable expert investigators provide confidential and private data of individuals as well as companies and organizations, depending on the nature of the information sought. Our clients range from foreign investment companies abroad to embassies for which we render regular investigative assignments. We also cover matters such as verification of various documents, determining their genuineness and authenticity from the concerned quarters.
We also cover matters such as arrest petitions, habeas corpus applications, change of investigation and dealing with persons who become fugitives from law and abscond due to various reasons.
