Among a range of other work, sexual offences work is a particular niche among the members of Six Pump Court. In an unrelated area, however, Simon Taylor prosecuted in a legally unusual case where a man was convicted of gross negligence manslaughter; the defendant failed to contact authorities for two hours after his companion fell off a sea wall into the English Channel.
