Jane Greenhalgh is known as an experienced and highly competent senior barrister with an extensive practice.

Called to the Bar in 2004, after a five year career as a solicitor and partner at Robert Lizar solicitors, Jane practises in general crime, fraud, serious sexual offences and organised crime. She has particular experience in complex fraud including MTIC, immigration fraud, agricultural fraud and trading standards.

Jane prosecutes and defends in equal measures and is a Grade 4 CPS Advocate.

In addition, she has a background in regulatory cases, being instructed on behalf of the GMC and representing defendants in GDC and HCPC cases at fitness to practice hearings.

Last year, Jane was junior defence counsel in R v Reynhard Sinaga, representing the most prolific sexual offender known in English legal history. She continues to represent this client in the upcoming Attorney-General reference proceedings, when the Crown will submit that the client should have been made the subject of a Whole Life Order.

Prior to that, Jane was Leading Prosecution counsel in R v Muhammad Babar Bashir et al, a lengthy immigration fraud instructed by the CPS Specialist Fraud Division. After a lengthy trial, the defence appealed against the convictions which Jane successfully argued against at the Court of Appeal.
