Private Prosecution

The breadth and depth of Chris’s experience in acting for the major public prosecution agencies equips him particularly well for private prosecution work.

He has prosecuted and defended in a number of fraud cases involving the civil-criminal crossover: a common feature in private prosecutions.

Additionally, his extensive work in civil indirect tax fraud has provided him with invaluable experience in bringing fraud allegations in a civil context. In that arena he has earned particular judicial praise for his ability to combine an understanding of commercial principles with dexterity in cross-examination.

Chris is currently instructed to advise a plc in an investigation with a view to a potential private prosecution relating to fraudulent misrepresentations, and to advise the director of a private company in relation to the private prosecution of another director for fraud offences relating to the company.

He has advised companies in relation to prosecutions of employees for theft and fraud, and individuals on the merits of private prosecutions in the corporate and private spheres.

Chris defended in a private prosecution arising from a High Court commercial case. The prosecution was stopped by the DPP following defence representations in respect of deficiencies in the practices adopted by the private prosecutor and his legal team.

He also represented a tech company in a private prosecution of data protection and fraud allegations. This case was also stopped by the DPP following his representations.
