Practice Areas

Oliver Glasgow KC was appointed Senior Treasury Counsel in 2015, King’s Counsel in 2016 and First Senior Treasury Counsel in 2020.

He has a reputation for detailed preparation, exceptional advocacy and is an especially good cross-examiner. He divides his practice between working at the highest level in the criminal sphere, where he appears in high profile trials of the utmost gravity for both prosecution and defence, and specialising in serious quasi-criminal and regulatory work, where he defends in regulatory and health and safety work, and acts for interested parties in public inquiries and inquests.

Recent instructions include high profile corporate manslaughter and health and safety matters (Sean Rigg, Geo & Primecare, Aster Healthcare); acting for the SPA and the MoD in historic abuse allegations; representing the AG of Jersey in the historic child abuse inquiry; and prosecuting complex homicide and terrorist offences (R v. Belorusov, R v. Cookhorn, R v. Sani-Semedo, R v. Hussein).

He regularly advises the AG and government departments in cases of general public importance; he advises companies and individuals in connection with investigations and private prosecutions; he advises professionals and sportsmen in connection with allegations of misconduct and ethics; and he advises foreign AGs in connection with domestic and international allegations of serious criminality and corruption.
