In recent years Robin has appeared in numerous complex and high-profile commercial, regulatory and criminal cases across the full range of domestic courts and tribunals, as well as in a number of international financial centres. A number of those cases have involved multi-billion pound liabilities and/or criminal and regulatory outcomes of lasting and industry-wide significance. Robin has substantial experience as a sole advocate both at first-instance and on appeal (including the Court of Appeal, Divisional Court and Upper Tribunal).
