Jonathan Hall QC6KBW COLLEGE HILLA ferociously bright silk, who can dissect the issues of a case at lightning speed.

6KBW COLLEGE HILL‘s Jonathan Hall QC represented the National Crime Agency (NCA) in a high-profile asset recovery case against Zamira Hajiyeva, the wife of a former chairman of a state-owned Azerbaijani bank who was convicted of embezzlement; the case marks the first time that the NCA issued an unexplained wealth order (UWO) after it was discovered that she had spent £16m in Harrods in a decade. Additionally, David Perry QC led William Hays in R (Gibson) v Secretary of State for Justice, a Supreme Court case which considered whether part-payments made against a confiscation order would reduce the term of imprisonment in proportion to the original amount of the order, or the original amount with interest.
