6KBW COLLEGE HILL (Chambers of Simon Denison QC)

Position

Louis is one of the most in-demand juniors at the criminal bar. With an international reputation for incisive analysis and strategic vision, his client base includes FTSE companies, banks and leaders in a range of corporate sectors. In 2013, he became the first London junior in a generation to be admitted to the Hong Kong bar. His other practice areas include contempt of court proceedings, extradition and human rights law. Louis is an expert in the field of corporate investigations, in particular in relation to multi-jurisdictional investigations involving the UK, US and Europe. In England, he was a natural choice for inclusion in what was described as ‘one of the most powerful legal teams ever assembled by the Crown in a criminal case’ in the litigation arising out of the Parliamentary expenses scandal. He has acted in numerous cases in the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.

Recent and ongoing cases include: London Whale Affair (arising from JP Morgan's annoucement of a US$ 2 billion loss in 2012); Ibrahim v UK (concerning whether the questioning of terrorist suspects under domestic legislation violated Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights); HKSAR v Kwok and Others (the largest corruption and bribery trial in Hong Kong); and Attorney General v Davey (contempt of court by jurors).
