Position

Ian is a Criminal Law specialist and is experienced in all fields of criminal law. His practice encompasses criminal law, inquest and regulatory work, and advising and appearing in Court of Protection cases.

Ian's Criminal instructions are equally balanced between prosecution and defence work.

He has been a Grade 4 Crown Prosecutor for a number of years and is currently accredited across the North Eastern, Northern, and Wales and Chester circuits. He is also accredited for the CPS Rape Panel.

More recently his practice has focussed on serious crime, including murder, manslaughter, serious sexual and other violent offending, dangerous driving (including where death has resulted), offences involving firearms, arson, and offending contrary to the Misuse of Drugs Act, with particular specialism in both fraud and sexual offending work.

He has provided training to the police concerning ‘Achieving Best Evidence’ and the video recorded interviewing of child and vulnerable witnesses; and he has lectured local law societies on a number of topics, including hearsay, bad character, asset recovery and criminal confiscation, and the sentencing provisions of the Criminal Justice Act 2003.

Career

Ian studied jurisprudence at Brasenose College, Oxford. He attended the Inns of Court School of Law, London under a Wilfred Watson scholarship awarded by Gray’s Inn. He was called to the Bar in 1997.
