Gudrun Young is widely regarded as an experienced and respected leading junior practitioner whose practice involves Criminal Defence, Serious and Complex Fraud, Civil Personal Injury Litigation and Regulatory and Professional Discipline.  She has gained extensive experience in defending at the highest level in the most serious and high profile of cases including murder, drug importation, complex fraud and serious sexual offences. She has particular skill in the careful and sensitive handling of sexual offences, often involving the cross-examination of young or vulnerable witnesses, and is a highly sought after advocate in this field.

In recent years she has extended her expertise to regulatory crime, civil fraud, professional discipline, coronial proceedings and personal injury. She is currently defending in civil proceedings in a complex occupational stress claim and high profile proceedings on behalf of a company accused of being “the worst gangmasters in the UK”.

She is regularly instructed in disciplinary proceedings in respect of a wide variety of professionals from teachers to health care professionals including nurses, doctors and dentists. She also has a significant advisory practice and advises in respect of related appellate proceedings in the High Court.

She has a reputation as a first class advocate with a fierce intelligence and a meticulous eye for detail who will prepare cases to the highest standard and works tirelessly on behalf of her clients.  She is also extremely approachable with an easy manner and an air of calm confidence that will put even the most anxious of clients at ease.

She has been described as “outstanding”, “highly intelligent” and a “formidable advocate”. A Judge who recently tried a case in which she appeared for the defence commented that she did a “fantastic job” and that her client was “superbly represented”.
