Garden Court Chambers is delighted to announce Gerard Pitt is now a member of the Garden Court Chambers Criminal Defence Team.
Gerard is a tenacious criminal defence advocate who quickly builds rapport with his lay clients.
Never one to shy away from a fight, clients appreciate Gerard’s enthusiasm for advancing novel legal arguments, he has developed a particular interest in the jurisdiction to stay proceedings as an abuse of process in both the Magistrates’ and Crown Court.
Gerard has already made several appearances in the Court of Appeal, where his advocacy has been described as “exemplary”, “detailed” and “cogent” by the Court.
Gerard also represents those facing contempt applications flowing from alleged breaches of anti-social behaviour injunctions, and in other quasi-criminal proceedings relating to protective orders.
