Stephen Vullo QC has been instructed in many of the most high profile cases to have been tried in recent years. He is regularly identified as the counsel of first choice as can be seen from the list of his previous clients who include, for example, Dave Lee Travis, Yassin Omar (21st July bomber), The Glasgow Bomber and His Royal Highness Prince Saud Abdulaziz Bin Nasser Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, the Saudi prince accused of murdering his slave in a London Hotel. He is currently instructed in an Operation Yewtree Case, a number of murders including the murder of the Syrian dissident Imam in Wembley and numerous appeals to the Court of Appeal. In January of 2015 the Court of Appeal commended his arguments before quashing three convictions for conspiracy to murder. The Court held that if the case had been presented by trial counsel as it had before them, the jury could not have convicted on the basis that they did. This case is currently the subject of complete press restrictions as it is to be retried in late 2015.
