Craig Ferguson is a highly experienced defence practitioner who has, for many years been cited as a leading junior by the leading professional directories where he is ranked in their highest bands. In particular, the latest edition of Chambers UK bears witness to the unusually high esteem in which he is held by solicitors and other clients by including him in all four of his principal practice areas: Health and Safety, Professional Discipline, Fraud and Serious and Complex Crime.

His practice now focuses principally on workplace crime and misconduct, representing companies, directors and professional people in relation to proceedings before the courts and disciplinary tribunals.

He has been described as “an exceptional all-round talent”. Solicitors praise his straight talking, user-friendly style which makes him “great to work with”. He is “highly regarded for quickly identifying the central issues of a case, no matter how complex, and arguing his clients’ corner with calm authority.”

Craig delivers training in relation to criminal regulatory and inquest matters to solicitors and other members of the profession.
