Since joining chambers from the Crown Prosecution Service in 2019, Eddison has developed a strong criminal practice spanning the North-Eastern and Northern Circuits. He acts for both prosecution and defence in the full range of criminal proceedings in the Crown Court. He understands the importance of maintaining effective working relationships with clients and encourages conferences at the early stages of cases to ensure that all stages progress smoothly.

Eddison Flint  – Exchange Chambers ‘Eddison is always thoroughly prepared; he knows his cases inside out. He is not afraid of taking on complex legal arguments. He has a great work ethic and is a dream to work with.’

At Exchange Chambers‘ Leeds office, the team of ‘formidable advocates‘ continues to act in high-profile cases of murder, serious violence, large-scale drugs conspiracies, serious sexual offences and high-value fraud. Nicholas Johnson KC is ‘an excellent speech-maker‘, and successfully prosecuted a man who was convicted of the sexual assault and murder of a vulnerable woman. Turning to the junior end of chambers, Eddison Flint defended a man charged with criminal damage to the York Minster after he scaled the building with the intention of taking his own life; he received a suspended sentence. The junior end of the team was bolstered by the arrival of Ayesha Smart.
