Commonwealth Criminal Offences

In Australia, Commonwealth criminal offences (Federal Offences) are governed by Commonwealth legislation, including the Commonwealth Criminal Code (Cth), which applies to all states and territories of Australia. The Commonwealth legislation allows for offenders to be prosecuted for crimes that are committed across state borders, or offences committed overseas. For this reason, Commonwealth offences are prosecuted in the higher Courts, which usually involve complex and sophisticated criminal activity.


We have extensive experience in acting in matters arising out of Commonwealth and International Legislation, including:

  • Commercial crimes;
  • Money laundering;
  • Serious drug offences;
  • Human trafficking;
  • Child exploitation;
  • Terrorism offences;
  • Cyber crime offences;
  • Social security fraud;
  • International Fraud; and
  • Corruption and bribery.
