Position

Paul is known for his direct, robust and no-nonsense approach in both his defence and prosecution practice. In his twenty years of experience, has become renowned for his fearlessness and his ability to find a route through even the most convoluted legal issues.

His practice involves the most serious and complex criminal cases including murder, fraud, large-scale conspiracies and serious sexual offences.

Paul qualified as a solicitor in 1997, before transferring to the bar in 2002 to specialise in serious crime, fraud, regulatory and coronial work. His confident and considered approach has enabled him to develop an enviable criminal practice.

Paul’s practice is diverse, broad-ranging, and constantly expanding. He has defended some of the most high-profile, serious and complex cases on circuit, and is also a Category 4 Prosecutor.

Paul’s regulatory practice continues to grow as he is frequently involved in defending Health and Safety prosecutions, as well as the defence of Care Home owners against allegations of abuse and neglect.

Paul’s inquest work has gone from strength to strength, and continues to develop, as he regularly appears in Article 2 cases in custody or care.

He is also a registered lawyer with the Football Association and provides training and advice on criminal law to young premier league club players.
