I am a very experienced practitioner with over 25 years’ experience in criminal and civil litigation. I represented a client in a landmark Female Genital Mutilation case; I have written a number of articles on the subject and also appeared on television and on BBC Radio 4. I appeared in Super Lawyers 2013. I have substantial experience in advising and representing clients who are under investigation by the police, HMRC, Department for Work and Pensions, SFO and National Crime Agency.

GBH: R v D

Road rage incident during which client was alleged to have assaulted another driver. The jury accepted he acted in self-defence.

GBH: R v S

Murder: R v S

Russian client was wrongly charged with murder. We established using his mobile phone data and CCTV that he was not in the area at the time.

Trafficking & Exploitation: R v M

Client acquitted of two serious charges relating to alleged trafficking of females from Romania for sexual exploitation.

Murder: R v ML

Client alleged to have been involved in a shooting. His co-defendants were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. Our client, following legal argument, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and received a substantially shorter sentence.

Fraud: R v SG

Client charged with others in a complex fraud, withdrawals were made on the pretence of being used for charitable purposes. It was alleged that client was involved in the fraud and received funds but we were able to prove that important documents were not in his handwriting and that he was not involved in the management of the charity. Following representations to the Crown Prosecution Service, no evidence was offered and a not guilty verdict was recorded.

Appeal against Conviction: R v E

Successful appeal against conviction in the Court of Appeal. Client was charged with conspiracy to rob and was convicted at trial. However, amongst other things, the Judge made an error in his directions to the jury, and the Court of Appeal quashed the conviction and ordered a re-trial.
