Fiona Robertson is a highly sought after junior with a diverse criminal and regulatory practice. Fiona’s mixed practice allows for continuity of representation for professionals potentially facing criminal, professional disciplinary and inquest proceedings.
Fiona is currently appointed as a Treasury Counsel Monitoree. She is an experienced junior who is able to master voluminous cases with precision and ease. As a result she is regularly instructed in paper heavy cases including high value, multi-jurisdictional fraud and money laundering matters.
Fiona is widely regarded as having particular expertise in cases involving vulnerable witnesses and defendants, including youths. She is often sought to defend serious sexual offences due to her ability to quickly build trust and a rapport with anxious clients. Her extensive expertise in the often complex and sensitive issues arising in such cases mean she is a skilled tactician who is able to rigorously challenge the prosecution case while bringing the best out of her client at trial.
In addition to her criminal practice Fiona has experience of international criminal law having worked for over three years in the Cayman Islands as a defence attorney. Her fearless approach in defending her clients meant she became one of the island’s most sought after criminal attorneys and regularly appeared in high profile cases on the island. The Cayman Islands has a fused profession and as such Fiona has experience in advising clients pre-charge as well as conducting all aspects of litigation.
