Career

Brent has a busy defence-only practice, and draws on a diverse professional background prior to his practice at the Bar in England and Wales. This gives him an insight into cases and trial strategies that are borne of that varied experience. Prior to studying law, and during his legal studies, Brent was employed in an accountancy firm and then in industry as a management accountant. He therefore has a particular interest and ability in complex frauds that require detailed analysis of financial transactions and accounts.

In addition, Brent spent several years as an in-house Solicitor-Advocate and Director with a leading criminal firm in the City of London, and practised almost exclusively in the Crown Court in a range serious and complex matters. As a Director, Brent was instrumental in many IT improvements and helped guide the implementation of e-working at that firm including development of mobile e-working apps for fee earners and associated IT training for all staff. He has also sat on user advisory committees to the MOJ and LAA in relation to the issue of e-working and IT deployment in the UK criminal justice system.
