Exceptionally, Naeem was appointed Queen’s Counsel in his fourteenth year of practice and is ranked as a Tier 1 Silk by the Legal 500.

From the Criminal, Administrative and Civil Courts through to the Regulatory fields; Naeem is frequently instructed to act for individuals charged with the most serious of offences, professional clients and organisations seeking to protect their position through a combination of robust advocacy, proactive advice and pragmatism.

With a proven track record of success, Naeem is highly sought after by both solicitors and lay clients. His broad practice, encompassing as it does a variety of work, indicates that Naeem is seen as a talented and versatile all rounder able to advance the interests of his client in any tribunal by those who instruct him.

He has extensive experience of defending individuals and organisations at the highest level in the most serious and high profile of cases that have attracted the attention of both domestic and international media. Naeem has successfully defended clients in cases involving issues of national security, terrorism, homicide, complex fraud and regulatory breaches.

Consistently cited in both Chambers UK and The Legal 500 as a leader in his field, Naeem is rightly regarded as one of the leading defence advocates in cases involving allegations of terrorism and homicide. To date, he has been instructed in numerous murder cases, over 40 terrorism cases and is one of a handful of barristers to regularly act for individuals subject to TPIM (formerly Control Order) proceedings.

He was instructed as Leading Counsel in R v Diini & Others (concerning the complicity of the Security Services in the detention and torture of a British citizen), SSHD v EB (TPIM), R v Msaad & Others (Terrorist funding), and R v Incidal & Rarmoul-Bouhadjar (aka R v AB & CD), R v Dodd & Others (multi-Defendant murder), R v E & Others ( multi-Defendant murder) and R v Khan & Others (multi-Defendant complex fraud), to name but a few.
Naeem also appeared as Leading Counsel before a “Special Court” of the Court of Appeal made up of both the President of the QBD and the Lord Chief Justice in the guideline section 5 Terrorism Act case of R v Kahar, Ziamani & Others.

“A skilled advocate and trial strategist.” – Legal 500 2017
