Criminal Defence

Frequently instructed as leading counsel, Scott has almost two decades’ worth of experience of defending in grave and complex criminal matters, including murder, attempted murder, serious violence, armed robbery, firearms, and major drug trafficking. He appears predominantly in multi-handed cases and, in addition to matters involving organised crime, is also vastly experienced in cases of large-scale and complex fraud. He has an enviable track record in the defence of those charged with serious and complex crime, as recognised by Chambers and Partners UK and The Legal 500 who rank him as a leading barrister in all areas of crime.
