Chambers of Brian Altman KC & Jim Sturman KC
2 Bedford Row

London Bar > Crime Tier 1

2 Bedford Row remains a ‘premier’ set for high-profile defence and prosecution work.  Jim Sturman KC  represented former police officer Wayne Couzens, who entered a guilty plea to the rape and murder of Sarah Everard, in his appeal against sentence, which involved issues as to if an individual who pleaded guilty could receive a whole-life tariff, among other questions about the most serious murder tariffs. Stan Reiz KC recently acted for a Liverpool man charged with the attempted murder of a man (his original target) and a schoolgirl in a cycle-by shooting – the defendant was convicted of attempted murder of the man, but acquitted of attempted murder of the girl on the basis that the doctrine of transferred malice does not apply to attempted murder. Turning to prosecution work, Jacqueline Carey KC successfully prosecuted former reality television personality Stephen Bear, who received a 21-month prison sentence for sexual offences including selling secretly filmed footage of him having sex with his ex-partner, a former Love Island contestant, on OnlyFans. Mark Milliken-Smith KC, as was, was appointed as a Circuit Judge in December 2023.
