Watch one of the UK’s leading cybercrime barristers speak about this troubling yet fast growing area of law.
His clients include those who have been acquitted after legal arguments, those who have been acquitted at trial, and those who have been acquitted where Dean was instructed after conviction.
Dean believes that there are certain matters which are crucial to be examined in such cases. He stresses the importance of disclosure of material unused by the prosecution and the significance of looking carefully at the position of all of the parties in the so called carousel.
These cases require, in Dean’s view, a great deal of experience in how to deal with material served by the prosecution and how to formulate an effective, focused approach in order to mount a powerful defence.
Dean’s experience and tactical awareness ensures that this does not happen. Your case will receive the full skill and attention of one of the UK’s top-rated VAT and MTIC barristers.
