Private Prosecution

Hannah has a keen interest in private prosecution work, having conducted over 10 successful private prosecutions.

Recent instructions include the successful prosecution of a market trader selling counterfeit goods, who asserted that his ignorance of the nature of the goods was a defence. The case was won following successful legal argument on that point. The private prosecutor was granted their prosecution costs from central funds, and a significant proportion of their investigation costs from the defendant.

In addition, Hannah is currently seconded to a leading law firm working as part of a team preparing the evidence in a private prosecution. The prosecution is for fraud and has a cross-jurisdictional element.


Hannah undertakes advisory work and has most recently acted as independent counsel in Operations Conjure and Snip. In Operation Conjure Hannah’s role was to be present on the ground to ensure that no items potentially subject to legal professional privilege (‘LPP’) were seized. In Operation Snip Hannah was asked to review items marked as LPP and provide a detailed advice on their status.
