Position

Miranda has a wide range of experience as a criminal practitioner. Specialising in business and corporate crime, she is particularly renowned for her ability to master substantial and complex cases. Miranda has unparalleled experience in relation to business and corporate crime.  She represented Rolls-Royce in the deferred prosecution agreement proceedings (led by David Perry QC and leading Katherine Hardcastle) and advised News Group Newspapers Limited and News UK in respect of the phone hacking and misconduct allegations (which concluded with no criminal proceedings being brought against either company). Since acting for BAE Systems Plc in the criminal proceedings which followed the investigation into allegations of corruption by the Serious Fraud Office, she has advised other companies on matters relating to allegations of corruption, including leading an internal investigation into allegations of corrupt behaviour by employees of a FTSE 100 company. She has been instructed on behalf of two major high-street banks to advise on matters relating to fraud, Financial Services and Markets Act and Companies Act offences.
