Criminal Defence

Julia advises and represents individuals and corporate bodies facing allegations of serious crime. Many former clients have been professionals, in a position of trust or holders of public office.

In the field of financial crime, she has defended those accused of high value complex fraud, money laundering and regulatory breaches, as well as in civil recovery proceedings under Part V of POCA. Examples include a charity worker accused of playing a part in widespread malpractice within the charity’s finance team; carers accused of stealing large sums from vulnerable people within their care; an alleged organised crime boss’s wife and sister accused of mortgage fraud and money laundering; a company director accused of defrauding mobile network operators; a bank manager accused of diverting funds for his benefit. She has also advised a charity on its potential liability in respect of hostage ransom payments, and a former trader accused of LIBOR fraud.

She has lectured to solicitors on corporate liability, confiscation and restraint.

Julia has represented people accused of a wide range of sexual offences, from rape to controlling prostitution. Examples include a former school teacher accused of indecently assaulting 10 boys; a volunteer worker accused of raping a boy hundreds of times; a former police officer accused of voyeurism; a man accused of indecently assaulting family members over many years.

She has also appeared in extradition proceedings. Having completed a secondment to the CPS Extradition Unit in 2008, she has since advised and represented defendants in a variety of cases, some of which have been particularly high-profile. For example, she represented a man convicted in his absence of murder in Italy, a case which was raised during Prime Minister’s Questions in Parliament; and a CEO accused of fraud in the United Arab Emirates. She has also provided advice in respect of extradition to the USA, the Russian Federation and regions of the former Yugoslavia.
