Albion Chambers (Chambers of Charles Hyde QC)

Position

Ignatius’ practice has covered a spectrum of the most serious and complex cases whilst in Silk: multi-handed murders; rape; drugs and firearm conspiracies; and fraud. Ignatius’ down-to-earth attitude and fearless and purposeful advocacy win favour with clients and juries. His excellent judgement, precision of thought and tactical subtlety underpin. Ignatius has particular expertise in the issues which arise in missing body murders, and cases of non-accidental head injury (the ‘baby shaking’ Triad). He is recognised for his mastery of the complex medical evidence involved in the latter, and a corresponding ability to cross-examine experts to devastating effect (as a result, Ignatius has also been retained as a leading counsel in family division cases involving these issues). Also works at 9 Bedford Row.
