2 Hare Court (Chambers of Jonathan Laidlaw QC)

Position

Oliver Glasgow QC was appointed Senior Treasury Counsel in 2015 and Queen’s Counsel in 2016. He has a reputation for detailed preparation, exceptional advocacy and is an especially good cross-examiner. He divides his practice between working at the highest level in the criminal sphere, where he appears in high profile trials of the utmost gravity for both prosecution and defence, and specialising in serious quasi-criminal and regulatory work, where he defends in regulatory and health and safety work, and acts for interested parties in public inquiries and inquests. Recent instructions include high profile corporate manslaughter and health and safety matters (Conquest Homes, Chevron Oil, Sean Rigg); acting for the SPA in historic abuse allegations and the MoD in the Blackman appeal; representing the AG of Jersey in the historic child abuse inquiry; and complex homicide and terrorist offences (R v. Hussain, R v Khalaf). He has advised the AG in cases of general public importance; advised companies and individuals in connection with investigations and private prosecutions; and advised professionals and sportsmen in connection with allegations of misconduct and ethics.
