Angus is an established leading junior who specialises in corporate and financial crime.

His practice has recently included being instructed by the SFO to secure Deferred Prosecution Agreements with two UK companies for bribery offences and to prosecute individuals suspected of bribery in the construction sector, representing the Federal Republic of Nigeria in its application for compensation from Glencore, prosecuting UK directors for paying bribes to secure Afghan military contracts and acting in the HBOS case involving corruption between senior managers at the bank and leading figures in the business community.

Angus also has significant expertise both in bringing and defending private prosecutions, especially those arising from commercial disputes. He represented Oleg Deripaska in his private prosecution of a former associate and in the related judicial review proceedings and his advice and counsel is regularly sought by other HNW individuals and companies seeking to explore this niche area.

An SFO Panel A and CPS level 4 prosecutor, he is routinely instructed as leading counsel in high profile, complex and multi-handed trials where specialist knowledge and first-rate advocacy are required.
