I have acted for both high-profile individuals, and professional persons, including Directors and C-suite executives, at all stages of criminal matters. 
In addition, I provide advice to corporates on any issues relating to criminal litigation and compliance.

I also have experience of acting in extradition proceedings in respect of both Part 1 and Part 2 territories. I have successfully resisted extradition requests on a number of occasions and acted for those seeking to engage in mutual legal assistance processes as an alternative to extradition.

I am a Corporate Crime Contributor for Lexis PSL and regularly provide commentary on issues related to white-collar crime and crypto assets.
Recent work highlights include:

  • Advising individuals and companies on criminal and related issues, including asset recovery, related to the use of cryptocurrencies
  • Prosecution discontinuing charges against my client for conspiracy to commit fraud and money laundering offences following representations
  • Advising on adequate procedures under s.7 of the Bribery Act 2010
  • Advising an individual in respect of possible criminality related to a unique piece of artwork
  • Advising in respect of possible data offences under the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and Data Protection Act 2018
  • Advising a multinational life sciences corporation in respect of a number of ongoing requests for assistance from various enforcement bodies
  • Drafting letters of representations to prosecution and enforcement bodies on behalf of corporates and individuals
  • Successful judicial review of a decision made in criminal proceedings
  • Advising on and drafting successful grounds of appeal against sentence in the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
  • Advocate in a number of reported fraud trials at Southwark Crown Court and throughout the South East of England
  • Advice on legal professional privilege
  • Conducting internal investigations

While at the self-employed Bar, I also gained invaluable insight into prosecution and government work as a graded prosecutor and through secondments at both the Serious Fraud Office and the Home Office.
I am the Co-Chair of the London Irish Lawyers Association and a former President of the Middle Temple Young Barristers’ Association.
