Barrister and Partner

Continued...

Called to the Bar in 1993, Adrian practiced at the Independent Bar where he enjoyed the support of a number of respected and high profile solicitors until he joined the firm in 2001. Adrian soon obtained his Duty Status and having been invited to become a partner in the firm, Adrian converted to become a solicitor to take up the offer of partnership. Subsequently in 2011 Adrian returned to the Bar (there having been a change in the rules allowing this) and is now a barrister in partnership with solicitors.

Described by one senior colleague as ‘the epitome of a modern solicitor’, Adrian is known for his client care and has also been commended on many occasions for his advocacy skills.

Adrian predominantly concentrates on trial work in the crown court and has recently defended in a murder trial. Instructed as the junior advocate, Adrian acted for the defendant who was charged with three others with the high profile murder of a young Italian waiter and inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent on his colleague. Following an eleven week trial the judge praised the work of the advocates involved..

Adrian's other recent cases including allegations of robbery, possession (class A) with intent to supply, violent disorder, fraud, arson and burglary.

When not in the crown court, Adrian’s versatile approach enables him to appear both in the police station and the magistrates court and he is able to cover criminal court hearings at all levels having rights of audience in all courts.

Adrian’s partnership responsibilities include matters relating to personnel and the production of the firm’s website.
