Chambers of Nicholas Rhodes QC and Neil Hawes QC
Charter Chambers


An international lawyer par excellence, he specialises in international crime, transitional justice and European law (especially in the fields of crime, employment and immigration), staying at the cutting-edge by publishing and teaching at the University of West London.

The advocate of choice in cases with a cross border element, he brings to the table international expertise, skilled advocacy and a relentless determination. In domestic proceedings, he is tailored for advocacy in proceedings involving issues of extradition, immunity, human trafficking, immigration crime, drug trafficking, money laundering, international fraud, bribery of foreign officials, terrorism and war crimes.

One of the most experienced war crimes advocates globally, his cases have tracked much of the development of modern international criminal law, starting with the acquittal of the former Rwandan education minister for genocide.
