Senior business figures, professionals and high net worth individuals face many legal responsibilities. At times, they need the protection that robust, intelligent and dynamic legal defence can provide.
The law places many responsibilities on individuals - and individuals need the protection that the law can offer. Rahman Ravelli works discreetly and dynamically to ensure that all of our clients benefit from that protection.
We represent individuals, including high-profile figures in business, politics, sports, entertainment and the media, who are at risk of reputational harm as a result of criminal investigation. We tailor a legal team specifically for each client and draw on our expertise in reputation and crisis management to navigate matters with skill and sensitivity. By doing this, we ensure that the consequences are minimised and individual reputation and professional standing are protected.
At Rahman Ravelli, we prioritise combining first-class client service with robust and highly strategic defence. Our specialist lawyers have in-depth knowledge and experience of investigative techniques and procedures. We also have an impressive track record in persuading investigative and prosecuting agencies to discontinue cases, and in securing not guilty verdicts at trial.

If you are arrested or invited to attend the police station for a voluntary interview, it is crucial that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.
Obtaining legal advice at the police station will help you understand why you have been arrested, the extent and weight of the evidence against you, your legal rights within the process and the implications of your decision whether or not to answer questions in an interview.
Rahman Ravelli’s specialist team of lawyers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to assist you in the event of an arrest and/or interview by law enforcement agencies.
If you have already been interviewed - with or without a lawyer present - and have been released while the investigation continues, we strongly advise you to seek legal advice as soon as possible.
