Criminal Litigation Lawyers

Criminal litigation is the process of trying a criminal defendant in a court of law in what is termed as a ‘criminal trial’. There are two litigators in such a case: a prosecutor, who represents the state’s case against the defendant and the defense attorney, who represents the client. Criminal litigation in India deals with criminal laws primarily governed by three Acts:

  • The Indian Penal Code 1860 (IPC),
  • The Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 (CrPC) and
  • The Indian Evidence Act 1872.

Apart from these, a number of special laws have also been passed for specialized cases such as Prevention of Corruption Act, Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) and POSH laws against sexual harassment at the work place. Criminal cases often include cases related to murder, theft, rape, assault, financial crimes etc.
