Kate Bex KC
Kate Bex KC is a highly regarded criminal advocate who defends and prosecutes.
She specialises in Murder & Manslaughter and large-scale Serious & Organised Crime.
Kate has experience of dealing with novel areas of law; she prosecuted an importation and supply of firearms by rival south London gangs involving a new weapon not seen by forensic scientists before which required expert evidence on the interpretation of s5 Firearms Act to set a precedent for future cases. Kate prosecuted the first FGM trial and successfully defended in the second. She prosecuted the first case of County Lines using Human Trafficking law, which went to the Court of Appeal twice.
Kate has been involved in cases requiring considerable sensitivity; defending a mother in the tragic killing of both of her children whilst suffering from an undiagnosed serious mental illness and defending a man accused of sexually assaulting eight women including children in a campaign lasting fifteen years.
Kate was a Steering Committee Member of the Private Prosecutors’ Association who contributed to the drafting of the Code for Private Prosecutors.
