Work Department



Barrister specialising in crime: acting both for prosecution and defence in serious criminal cases including top level drug dealings, homicide, manslaughter, kidnapping, serious sexual misconduct, fraud, money laundering and police corruption.

In the first fifteen years of his practice he was engaged in all areas of the common law, and had particular experience acting in personal injury actions on behalf of the members of the National Union of Railwaymen and the Rail Marine and Transport Union. This work included accidents on rail road and sea, ranging from minor injuries to multiple fatality cases. By way of example, he acted for the families of two railwaymen who had been killed at work in both the inquest proceedings and the actions for damages. By the mid 1990’s his practice had become almost exclusively criminal and employment work.
