  • R v Straker & Others – Successfully represented the only director/shareholder in the first ever contested Land Banking Fraud prosecution. The prosecution alleged that the defendant and his co-directors set up numerous companies as vehicles to defraud investors of money in exchange for worthless plots of land within the United Kingdom. Hundreds of experienced investors parted with over £3.5m during the short life of the conspiracy as sales staff used pressure techniques making false and extravagant representations as to the value and investment potential of the plots. Although the defendants owned some of the sites offered for sale, they also sold land which they had no right to market or sell.
  • R v Rochester and others – Representing the main defendant from the police station through to the crown court in a money laundering case in which it was alleged that the defendant laundered up to £20m through the Caribbean.
