Practice Areas

Benjamin is a highly sought after junior barrister. He has developed an enviable practice in defending and prosecuting criminal offences of the utmost gravity and complexity, particularly cases involving complex questions of fact and law.

Benjamin is frequently instructed to in dealing with matters that involve a cross-border dimension including both the investigation itself and conduct in question. He is usually instructed as a leading junior or junior alone and occasionally instructed as a lead junior. His work often involves cases which attract a high degree media interest and involve high-profile individuals.

Benjamin is usually instructed in cases involving counsel well beyond his year of call and is often called upon to draft - and subsequently lead in delivering - complex submissions on behalf of the defence in multi-handed cases.

He is well known for his attention to detail, work ethic and tenacity before both first instance and appellate tribunals. The effort he puts into cases enables him to establish a rapport with clients, juries and professional tribunals alike.

Benjamin particularly specialises in the successful representation of individuals and corporates said to be involved in the most organised, complex and grave of alleged criminal misconduct. He is often instructed to represent individuals and corporates in the pre-charge ‘investigation’ by prosecuting agencies including parallel civil investigations.

He is often instructed to represent in the course of parallel civil and criminal investigations and has successfully both resisted and set aside Account Freezing Orders sought and previously obtained by various prosecuting agencies.
