BLL’s Lead Counsel, Jonathan Fisher QC and Anita Clifford, BLL’s Principal Associate, Barrister, secured the acquittal of the first defendant in a serious banking fraud trial at Inner London Crown Court yesterday. The trial lasted 8 days and involved one of the UK’s leading banks. The court made a costs order in favour of BLL’s client at the end of the case.
The independent legal directories have commented that Jonathan Fisher QC is
“… the person you would want fighting for your corner if you were in a tight spot.”
(Fraud, Crime: Legal 500 2018);
“ … understood which buttons to press in court”
(Chambers UK 2018, Financial Services);
“A very effective advocate …”
(Chambers UK 2016); and
“… deadly at spotting the weaknesses of the opponent’s case”
(Chambers UK 2014).
