  • His expertise in cross-examination and witness handling has contributed to the successful conclusion of cases in which he has acted for the victims of fraud.
  • He is presently instructed to advise an international company in connection with a private prosecution, a private property developer who has been the victim of a significant fraud, and a witness to a private prosecution who faces a costs application for his part in the proceedings.
