Robert Lassey


During his Pupillage, Rob developed a thriving criminal practice, regularly appearing in both the Magistrates and Crown Courts, undertaking all aspects of Criminal work. Rob is consistently instructed by both the Prosecution and Defence, and has a particular interest in cases involving a crossover with his Employment law practice.

Rob was instructed by the Crown Prosecution Service as the Disclosure Junior for the highly reported Paul Croft Murder trial which was reopened by the cold case unit in 2015, and resulted in the successful conviction of both defendants.

Client Recommendation: We were first offered Mr. Lassey when we had to represent a defendant in Sheffield to put forward an exceptional hardship argument. Mr. Lassey was exceptionally thorough in his preparation and attendance to what was requested. We have since instructed him on several other matters, and hope to send him future instructions as and when required. - Matthew Miller, Kenway Miller Solicitors.
