Szilvia BookerFoundry ChambersDeceptively good at cross-examination.

Foundry Chambers is ‘a very strong set‘ with ‘competent and skilful counsel‘, who mostly prosecuted but also handle challenging defence instructions. John McGuinness QC was instructed by the Crown Prosecution Service in the Supreme Court, resolving a point of the construction of the Representation of the People Act 1983; the case resolved a legal issue prior to a trial that saw an employee of the Conservative Party given a suspended prison sentence for falsifying expenses during the 2015 general election. Szilvia Booker, led, prosecuted in a case after a number of young women were trafficked to a brothel, which was protected by a corrupt PCSO. Meanwhile, unled, Nicholas Dunham prosecuted a man who stalked television personality Christine Lampard, and in a Newton hearing was found to have sent tweets threatening to crucify her.
