Richard Scott is a courteous, conscientious and confident advocate. He returned to 5 St Andrew’s Hill having spent exactly 3 years attached to the Advocacy Unit of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in Essex as a Senior Crown Advocate. Therein he continued to build upon the experience and skills that he had previously gained as a criminal barrister in Chambers at 5 St Andrew’s Hill and 1 Harcourt Buildings.

Whilst at the CPS Richard Scott was instructed in some of the more serious cases and was also required to advise the Chief Crown Prosecutor in those difficult and sensitive cases which required review at that level within the CPS. He advised on cases such as death by dangerous driving, so called shaken baby syndrome and cases involving public interest immunity (PII).
