Drystone Chambers (Chambers of Karim Khalil QC and Andrew Campbell Tiech QC)

Work Department

Criminal law, mental health law, fraud.


Ed Renvoize has developed an impressive practice having undertaken a common law pupillage before specialising in criminal law. His practice has since become focused upon financial crime and drug offences although he regularly undertakes cases of serious violence, sexual offences and firearms offences. From 2007 to 2009 Ed practised as a criminal defence attorney at a leading law firm in the Cayman Islands and has an excellent knowledge of inter-jurisdictional criminal offending.

Much of his case load in the Cayman Islands was financial crime but in addition he undertook the gamut of criminal offences ranging from murder and very serious sexual offences to possession of cannabis.

Ed has been regularly instructed by the complex case unit of the CPS and equally receives instructions in complex and paper heavy cases for the defence. That experience coupled with his work in the Cayman Islands has exposed him to substantial expert evidence including DNA, gun shot residue and forensic accountancy.

In addition to his Crown Court and tribunal work he appears in the Court of Appeal and has been instructed on a number of occasions to pursue appeals upon referral.

He is qualified to accept instructions from the public by way of direct access. Please see the associated page for further information about how you can instruct Ed to represent you for your case.

Other Experience

Ed is a contributing author to Westlaw Insight and has previously lectured BVC students as well as being invited to deliver a specialist video lecture on dealing with defendants with mental health issues by the College of Law.

  • Security Token Offerings in the Cayman Islands

    Security Token Offerings (“STOs”) are an extremely popular means of fundraising for new projects and utilise blockchain technology to do so. Whilst no specific legislation has been passed by the Cayman Islands Government in connection with STOs and cryptocurrencies, it would be incorrect to say that STOs are “unregulated”.

    Black Friday is unquestionable one of the most profitable and busiest days of the year for retail, particularly online. Worldwide almost all online store do offer sales or special promotions on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Already after this practice has established online, a trademark for " BLACK FRIDAY " was registered in Germany back in 2013. In 2016 a Chinese company acquired the trademark and then filed in 2017 for its extension to Austria. Based on the registered trademark, it granted exclusive rights to an Austrian company, which licensed usage rights to various partner stores against remuneration. Further, an exclusive " Black Friday-Cooperation Program " was established. Non-partners who used the event name or trademark were prosecuted and requested to either pay a license fee or refrain from running Black Friday promotions. Some followed the request and entered into license agreements. Some, however, did challenge the validity of the trademark. Finally, respective proceedings to check the actual protection of the trademark were initiated. Austrian courts now held that the trademark " BLACK FRIDAY " is not protected in Austria .

  • News media exemption under the Privacy Act: now a matter of "responsibility"?

    The role of the news media as the "eyes and ears" of the public, and the corresponding right of such news media to be exempted from the Privacy Act 1993 ( Privacy Act ), is entrenched and well accepted. However, the extent to which the news media exemption applies to non-traditional forms of "news" published by "civilian journalists", such as online commentary and blogs, is a hotly debated subject.
  • Quarterly Update on Trade Defense Cases in Turkey (June 2019)
