His practice encompasses a broad range of offending, including homicide, serious violence, large-scale drug trafficking, people trafficking, serious organised crime, firearms, public order, dishonesty and sexual offences.

In particular, he has extensive experience in white-collar crime, including serious fraud, money laundering, bribery, corruption and all aspects of related restraint and confiscation proceedings. In this regard, John has been retained to advise pre-charge in the course of a number of high-profile investigations and has acted in complex applications for production orders and multi-million-pound confiscation proceedings.

John has been appointed to the CPS serious crime, fraud and proceeds of crime panels and the list of Specialist Regulatory Advocates in health and safety and environmental law.
