Three Raymond Buildings (Chambers of Alexander Cameron QC)

Position

Ben Brandon specialises in extradition, fraud and professional misconduct.  He has acted for individual defendants and foreign Governments in pre and post 2003 Extradition Act proceedings.  A number of cases that Ben has appeared in are now regularly cited as leading authorities in extradition texts and High Court appeals.

He has also represented individual and corporate clients for over 20 years in complex commercial fraud and regulatory proceedings, from the Maxwell case through Barings Bank, Jubilee Line Extension to the first of the Torex trials and Kaupthing Bank.  He has a particular expertise in multi-jurisdictional investigations and proceedings in civil and criminal cases, and regularly advises individuals and corporations on judicial cooperation and mutual assistance, setting aside INTERPOL Red Notices, EUROJUST and United States Department of Justice investigations.

Ben has experience in High Court contempt proceedings: he acted for the Lebanese oil and construction group Consolidated Contractors in proceedings before the commercial court for contempt in the notorious Masri litigation.

In a distinct but long standing element to his practice, Ben has acted for numerous police officers of Federated rank in misconduct proceedings and Police Appeals Tribunals across England, as an instructed advocate, and formally as a solicitor and partner at Russell Jones & Walker (now Slater & Gordon LLP). He has also recently acted as legal advisor to a misconduct panel, convened to consider allegations of gross misconduct made against an officer of ACPO rank.

Arising from his  police discipline practice, Ben has also appeared in numerous Inquests in death in police custody cases, acting for individual officers.
