About Us

Forensics UK is a privately-owned company that provides forensic science services to support the Criminal Justice system.  We can provide a ‘crime scene to court’ service to the Defence as well as to national police forces.

We also provide forensic investigations for insurance companies to detect possible fraud.

The reputation of the company is founded on the principles of providing high quality forensic science expertise in a balanced, fair and impartial way.

Following any enquiry from a client if we feel that the forensic science aspect of the case will not provide any added value to the investigation we shall inform you at the outset.  The limitations of any findings or interpretation will be expressed in a transparent manner.

Whether providing a full ‘crime scene to court’ service, or simply reviewing the prosecution’s case for a Defence Solicitor or Barrister, Forensics UK will provide written reports and CJA statements within strict timescales – when you need it!
