2 Hare Court (Chambers of Jonathan Laidlaw QC)

Position

Acknowledged in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 editions of Chambers UK and The Legal 500 as a leader in his field, Naeem practises primarily in criminal law and has proven to be a popular choice of counsel amongst both solicitors and lay clients. Recognised for his skilful and robust advocacy, Naeem rapidly built both a reputation and successful defence practice. He is now regularly instructed as leading counsel and is usually briefed in cases that are often seen as the preserve of counsel with greater seniority. Noted for both his tactical and mature approach to cases that are often of particular complexity, he is regularly instructed to act for defendants charged with the most serious of offences. Such cases include Terrorist Act offences, multidefendant murder and large scale multi-defendant drug and fraud cases. He is noted for his ability to rapidly identify and address the key issues in any case. Naeem is currently acting for a number of individuals who have not been charged with any offence but whom the Home Secretary considers to have been involved in terrorism or terrorism related activities and are therefore subject to TPIMs under the Terrorism Prevention And Investigation Measures Act 2011. Instructed as leading counsel in a case concerning 12 defendants charged with importation, distribution and money laundering connected with class A drugs, Naeem recently secured the only not guilty verdict for his client following a trial lasting some ten weeks. His broad practice, encompassing as it does a variety of work, indicates that Naeem is seen as a talented all rounder by those who instruct him.
