Did You Know?
Since 1st April 2013 changes to the legal system mean that you can now instruct a barrister directly even if you may be entitled to legal aid. Click here to read about the different ways you can instruct me.
I am a barrister with substantial experience in criminal and regulatory proceedings. I practice from Carmelite Chambers in London and for the last 15 years I have defended my clients in cases involving allegations of fraud (crime and civil), serious crime and regulatory proceedings.
I am recognised in Legal 500 as a leading barrister and as part of case work, I am frequently called upon to advise both individuals and corporate clients on both domestic and international matters.
I can advise on the strength of the case against you, the options that are available to you and what additional evidence could be obtained in your defence. Many of my clients seek my guidance through the preliminary stages of a case and then retain me to appear as their barrister at subsequent hearings.
Some of my cases attract significant media attention, most don’t. Irrespective of the nature and seriousness of your charges, I will be committed to your case and ensure your voice is heard.

Many of my clients are alleged to have been part of large scale criminal conspiracies.
In these cases, the prosecution typically relies on phone or computer downloads, bank statements, text messages, cell site data and a person’s associations. With these types of cases early advice is essential.
If you are on police bail, have just been charged or attending the Crown court, it is important you arrange legal advice from an experienced professional. If you wish to discuss your case, confidentially, feel free to contact me and we can arrange a meeting.

Civil Fraud / Unlimited Wealth Orders
I have extensive experience assisting de facto directors and a de jure directors against Insolvency claims suggesting wrongful or fraudulent trading. I can assist with pleadings, disclosure and negotiations with the Liquidators. It is essential that the relevant issues are identified quickly to assist settlement and/or any strike out application.
Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWO)
A UWO is an investigation order issued by the High Court on satisfaction of a number of tests. It requires a person who is suspected of involvement in serious crime to explain how property owned by them was obtained. Where there are reasonable grounds to suspect that a person’s declared income would be insufficient to allow them to obtain the property, the property can be seized.
If you have been made the subject of an UWO, it is essential you adopt the right strategy to reclaim your property. See here, how I can assist
I have acted for doctors, dentists, nurses, chartered surveyors, teachers, police officers and solicitors in connection with disciplinary proceedings before their respective professional bodies.
