Partner

Carl is a partner in the White Collar Defence and Investigations team.

Carl has over 20 years’ experience of investigations, regulatory and criminal matters, acting for both individuals and corporates. He routinely deals with a myriad of issues for senior executives, managers and other UK professionals. He is frequently involved in cross-border issues and works closely with colleagues in the US and Asia to resolve complex matters. Carl also has a wealth of experience dealing with financial misconduct, representing regulated entities and individuals. Carl has a reputation for robustly representing his clients’ interests and has managed proceedings and investigations involving bodies such as the Financial Conduct Authority, Prudential Regulation Authority, Serious Fraud Office and UK tax authority and the National Crime Agency. His practice also extends to internal investigations, public enquiries, defence side representation, extradition cases and some politically sensitive global sanctions cases.

Carl continues to attract internal investigations from national arts institutions and global corporates. Individual instructions include executives at premier league clubs, HNWIs in multimillion pound international prosecutions, core participants in ongoing public inquiries and a high-profile individual involved in political scandal with an ongoing investigation. Corporate instructions include an internal investigation for a PLC with accounting and VAT irregularities that has led to a self-report to the SFO and had national news coverage, a cultural and corruption review at a global real estate company and a director in an ongoing SFO cross-border fraud investigation.

В двух словах о себе

Away from work I can’t read crime novels or watch crime programmes as I always find myself too keen to solve the mystery long before the end, as well as pointing out the obvious flaws, to others dismay.

I specialise in white collar defence and investigations and have always enjoyed dealing with the power of the state in its many guises. Such power can be wielded lightly or with brute force, I ensure that it is wielded appropriately and that the necessary checks and balances are adhered to.

I am a great believer that people and organisations should be treated fairly and to that everybody should avail themselves of good advice when involved in or conducting an investigation.

Being the subject of an investigation can be overwhelming and being able to help clients in these difficult situations, reminding them that there is much they can do to defend themselves and robustly representing their interests is the main reason I entered the law.

These days I also enjoy helping clients navigate through the ever increasing regulatory and criminal framework that now impacts upon business and individuals alike.
