Garden Court's Crime Team is best known for defending in cases ranging from murder and terrorism to public order and protest. We undertake a wide range of white-collar crime and regulatory work, including corporate fraud, missing-trader fraud, money laundering and confiscation cases. Many members have worked with community organisations and law centres, so we understand the needs of vulnerable clients facing criminal charges.
Over many years, Garden Court has defended in – and won – many of the landmark cases that have defined modern criminal law.
Our team consists of over 70 barristers, including 16 silks.
