Career

Nicholas is a leading criminal defence practitioner in both Fraud and Serious Crime. He is an astute tactician and compelling advocate who is able to present complex and sensitive cases to juries in an attractive and engaging way. His attention to detail and commitment mean that he is highly valued by solicitors and regularly instructed to defend in the most challenging cases.

His fraud practice includes representing a former Barclays trader convicted of Libor rigging in an appeal against conviction and defending a company director in a series of three complex fraud trials alleging fraudulent trading, false accounting and defrauding Natwest bank. He is presently instructed in two multi-million pound frauds due for trial in 2019; an MTIC and a boiler room fraud.

In Serious Crime, in 2018 alone, he has acted as Leading Junior Counsel in a shooting, a kidnapping and a conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary. He has also been led in two murders and appeared for the main defendant in a 14 handed drugs conspiracy. He is presently instructed in two further multi-handed drugs conspiracies, one as Leading Junior.
