3 TEMPLE GARDENS (3 TEMPLE GARDENS)

Career

Tim Forte has a well-established practice in large, complex and serious crime specialising in heavyweight violence, fraud, drugs and firearms offending. Notably, of the 5 on-duty police officers alleged to have been murdered in the UK since 2010, Tim has been instructed in the murder trials relating to 3 of them.

He has built a strong reputation with a wide spectrum of professional clients, both increasingly as a leader and as junior (alone or led). In common with his colleagues at 3 Temple Gardens, he combines outstanding client care, thorough preparation and acute legal acumen. Tim is respected as a fighter with very sound judgment, who can be relied upon to take the initiative in the case and to carry the fight to the prosecution. He has, over the years, conducted numerous, complex legal submissions, often taking the lead in and succeeding in arguments overlooked or forsaken by others. As an experienced appellate advocate, Tim is often singled out to take over complex and substantial proceedings on appeal.

Solicitors value his hands-on approach and his willingness to take ownership and control of cases, especially in the numerous VHCC cases in which he has been instructed. He has established a good working relationship with a wide number of contract managers, which almost invariably leads to a smooth-running contract, with virtually all required hours being authorised.

Tim is particularly sought after in cases involving telecoms and computer evidence, both probe and telephone intercept evidence and substantial telecoms data re pattern, attribution and cell site, as well as, now, decrypted PGP devices - his computer and technological expertise making him the ideal man to brief. He has been instructed in numerous such cases, and can be relied upon to manage and master voluminous and complex material with time to spare.
