Position

The principal focus of Christopher’s practice has always been fraud and white collar crime, where he is recognised as a highly experienced and able leading junior. In recent years he has undertaken a large number of cases representing HMRC in appeals involving alleged MTIC fraud and other indirect tax disputes before the Tax Tribunals, Chancery Division and Court of Appeal (Civil Division). His criminal fraud caseload includes international corruption, large-scale investment fraud, excise duty & VAT fraud, insurance fraud and money laundering. He receives instructions from defence firms and all major prosecuting authorities. He is an SFO ‘A’ panelist (both the general, and proceeds of crime panels) and is a Grade 4 CPS prosecutor (general, and fraud panels). He is a specialist in confiscation and related proceedings, and has lectured on the topic both conventionally and via the Internet. In the regulatory sphere he works in medical and legal professional discipline. He appears in inquests and has advised on and appeared in applications for judicial review, most recently representing a major advertising company in proceedings relating to alleged planning offences.
