Business Crime & Financial Services

Daniel has extensive experience defending company directors and business professionals facing the full range of financial misconduct, with an enviable record of success.

Commercially astute, tactical and with a talent for getting to the very core of even the most complex and voluminous of cases with ease, Daniel has represented clients charged with large-scale MTIC and boiler room frauds, mortgage fraud, money laundering and fraudulent trading as well as in associated confiscation proceedings.  A number of his cases have had an international dimension.

Notable cases:

R v JS

Illegal Money Lending Team prosecution in which the defendant and his wife (represented by Lewis MacDonald) were accused of operating a business providing hundred of thousands of pounds of loans over several years. The defence case was that the loans were provided as part of a culture originating in the Philippines, did not constitute a business and were therefore exempt from regulation under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. Both defendants were acquitted of all charges after a trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

R v CP & Ors

Leading Ella Ripper, represented a senior personal banker at NatWest in a £1.2M six week fraud trial at Southwark Crown Court.

R v PS

Carbon credit fraud (Operation Toll; Operation Liquid) Instructed on behalf of a company director alleged to have masterminded the laundering of the proceeds of more than 20 ‘boiler room’ frauds.

R v DR

International money-laundering operation involving the transfer of millions of pounds through front companies purporting to import alcoholic drinks. Acquitted following successful submission of no case to answer.

R v MB

Cheating the Revenue. Acted for the first defendant in a multi-million pound case arising from the non-payment of capital gains tax.

R v VE

Six-handed trial for conspiracy to launder money through a money service bureau in the West End. Complete acquittal.

R v GH

Multi-million-pound confiscation proceedings stayed as an abuse of process on the ground that the prosecution had failed to act within the spirit of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.
