Miranda’s practice covers a number of areas where she has developed both a specialism and a strong reputation as a tenacious advocate for both defence and prosecution.
She has successfully delivered results in complex frauds, for the SFO and when defending, this includes bribery and corruption cases.

She is also a recognised expert in multi defendant cases involving computer and telecoms evidence and has recently advised in and acted in a multi product drugs case involving an OCG with international elements.
Miranda has also successfully defended and prosecuted a number of “historic abuse” cases involving a range of professionals including police officers, doctors and teachers. One of these was highlighted when she was The Times “Lawyer of the Week”.
Over many years Miranda has been a trailblazer in the careful handling of children as witnesses and defendants, also with vulnerable adults to ensure they are treated with appropriate levels of consideration.
