biography

I am a Business crime lawyer with a particular focus on health and safety. I have handled a broad range of regulatory investigations and prosecutions over the last 29 years, assisting both companies and individuals to minimise the risk facing them through criminal liabilities arising from internal or external investigations. I have the knowledge and resources to work on domestic and international business crime litigation matters including health and safety; bribery and corruption, environmental crimes; product safety; white collar crime.

I advise Boards of Directors and have developed a range of training programmes and tools to help Directors understand their responsibilities, and understand how to deal with crisis situations should they occur. I run an innovative training programme which involves coaching Directors undergoing a simulated interview under caution, so participants can experience the reality of an external criminal investigation. Clients and peers praise my practical and proactive approach in providing this Board-level advice, such that I am regarded as a trusted adviser.
