MacGuill & Company has extensive experience in defending cases prosecuted under special powers, such as anti-terrorism legislation.
Our experience includes defending prosecutions under the Offences Against the State Act and similar emergency measures. This experience also includes cases of international terrorism, and we have worked with colleagues in other jurisdictions –including the US and the United Kingdom – in relation to their very specific anti-terrorism measures.
We are also familiar with the defence of terrorism finance cases.
