Daniel Chadwick is a specialist criminal defence barrister with a practice exclusively defending those facing charges relating to high-value and complex fraud and business crime and serious organised crime across the country. He also has experience of defending in EncroChat cases.
Engaging, accessible and fearless, Daniel is a natural and talented jury advocate. He is known for his incisive cross-examination and compelling speeches, but in addition Daniel’s dogged determination to pursue issues of disclosure and abuse of process during the pre-trial stage have produced remarkable results, often resulting in cases being dropped.
Daniel approaches cases strategically from the outset and, with a reputation for being both pro-active and meticulous in his case preparation, he is frequently sought out to represent professionals in cases of the utmost gravity. In recent years, he has routinely appeared in large and complex multi-handed cases, often for the first defendant.
