Miranda’s practice covers a number of areas where she has developed both a specialism and a strong reputation in both defence and prosecution.
She has successfully delivered results in complex frauds, for the SFO and when defending, this includes bribery and corruption cases.
Working closely with investigating officers even before trial, she has helped to successfully navigate some emotionally disturbing cases such as significant child cruelty and the death of infants. The work she led in the successful prosecution in the Kayleigh Haywood case attracted significant media attention. Indeed, a documentary was subsequently made and distributed to schools as part of a nationwide campaign to raise awareness and the dangers of on-line grooming.
Miranda has also successfully defended and prosecuted a number of “historic abuse” cases involving a range of professionals including doctors and teachers. One of these was highlighted when she was “Lawyer of the Week” in The Times.
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.
Miranda has been Head of Chambers for the last 6 years and is a Bencher of Lincoln’s Inn.
