Position

Neil Baki is a specialist trial advocate. He has extensive experience in civil and criminal fraud (including money laundering, bribery and corruption), contentious tax and financial litigation.


Ranked as a leading junior in the Legal 500 for fraud, Neil has been instructed to lead, and has been led in a number of extremely complex and high value fraud and tax cases. His work involves advising companies and financial institutions as well as individuals accused of dishonesty or misconduct.

Neil is regularly instructed by City firms, and directly by accountants to assist on a wide range of matters including breach of contract, contentious tax litigation and corporate criminal liability. Neil also has experience in drafting injunctions, freezing orders, asset tracing orders and affidavits, as well as defending in such applications, often at short notice.

Neil has advised a number of companies, investment firms and financial institutions as to their duties under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, Money Laundering Regulations and Bribery Act 2010. Neil has an excellent understanding of financial services law and the workings of the FCA, PRA, NCA, SFO and HMRC.

Neil has also advised on criminal offences relating to news gathering and investigations, conspiracy, bribery and interception of communications, blagging, data protection act offences and harassment.

For example, Neil was instructed to advise a journalist in Operation Elveden and National newspaper editor in Operation Weeting in relation to bribery/corruption and phone-hacking taking place in the civil and criminal Court. Neil has been instructed to lead, and has been led in a number of extremely complex and high value civil and criminal fraud cases. His work is split between representing individuals and increasingly companies and financial institutions.
