'Excellent set' Three Raymond Buildings houses a team of barristers which counts representing officers in disciplinary proceedings as a core area of their expertise. Alisdair Williamson QC successfully defended police constable Andrew Birks, one of five officers charged with alleged misconduct over the death of Sean Rigg which followed the musician's restraint while in police custody. Also of note, Neil Saunders was instructed in the case of an officer disciplined after using allegedly excessive force on a young person who was in possession of a machete; the officer, a senior black belt, used martial arts training to protect himself.
