Position

Rupert has an exclusively defence practice, largely privately funded.  He is regularly instructed as leading junior in Murder/Manslaughter trials and in serious fraud.  Recent cases have occurred from the operation of a property maintenance contract within social housing; laundering proceeds of a spread betting scheme; advance fee fraud concerning high yield investments and  allegations of corruption against Ugandan National Guard member facing bribery charges over the award of anti terrorist training contract.

Rupert represents interested persons where death has arisen out of police pursuits and deaths in custody.

He has been instructed in police disciplinary proceedings involving receipt of allegedly corrupt payments and mishandling of informants.  Rupert often has to deal with Health and Safety issues in these cases particularly those that involve police pursuits where the safety of officers and members of the public is at risk and deaths in custody.
