Crime

Within: Leading Juniors

Heather Oliver - Three Raymond Buildings ‘ Her defence practice includes representing police officers. ’

Within: Crime

'An elite set with a second-to-none reputation', Three Raymond Buildings handles a number of more specialist criminal matters, including both prosecution and privately funded defence work. In particular, the set, which enjoys a close relationship with the Police Federation and its preferred firms of solicitors, has a strong track record in defending police officers in criminal cases. Richard Horwell QC prosecuted a couple who were convicted of murdering French au pair Sophie Lionnet over a false belief that she was having an affair with one of their ex partners, a former member of boy band Boyzone. Among the juniors, Guy Ladenburg successfully prosecuted the cold case rape of a pensioner in 1986, while Heather Oliver represented a police officer who was convicted of, but given an absolute discharge for, burglary with intent to commit criminal damage by attacking a barber shop with a traffic cone.
