R-v-DO: 2016 client charged with a conspiracy to commit armed robberies of jewellers’ shops, but the CPS were persuaded to drop the allegation in return for a guilty plea relating to one particular incident only.
R-v-FB: 2015 client charged with attempted murder after igniting a fire at her flat, in which her young daughter was sleeping. After a substantial trial involving complex expert evidence, FB was convicted only of a much lesser offence.
R-v-ON: 2014 client charged with religiously aggravated assault following an incident involving a well-known politician. The case had to be handled with care and sensitivity, and ultimately the prosecution dropped the religiously aspect of the allegation.
R-v-NL: 2013 client charged in connection with a substantial conspiracy to import opium. The case proceeded at the Old Bailey, where the defendant pleaded guilty on a limited basis.
R-v-TN: 2013 client charged with attempted murder, following an incident in which he stabbed a shopkeeper repeatedly with a knife in an unprovoked attack. Psychiatric issues needed careful exploration, and guilty pleas to lesser charges were successfully negotiated.
