  1. handshakeTony Meisels successfully represented an individual who was tried on indictment and faced charges of historic sexual abuse; the alleged victim was his teenage daughter. The client was acquitted of all charges; the advocate was the excellent Soraya Lawrence of Farringdon Chambers;

  2. Jeffrey Lewis and Siobhain Egan are instructed in a high profile Libel action, which has arisen from criminal proceedings.

  3. Sean and James Reilly are instructed in the following cases and represent:

  4. Siobhain Egan successfully represented a professional man, who holds a senior position in a very sensitive profession and faced an allegation that he had assaulted his wife. The CPS were aware that his wife, who had been under the influence of alcohol when she called the police, had withdrawn her allegation within hours of the original 999 call.
    Siobhain wrote to the CPS asking that they reconsider the decision to prosecute, stating that the couple wanted to reconcile (our clients bail conditions excluded him from the family home) and that if the case proceeded, the client would automatically lose his job and therefore his ability to support their children.The CPS refused and continued with the prosecution.
    Siobhain instructed the excellent David Nathan QC, who persuaded the very experienced Judge after arguing Abuse of Process, that it would be impossible for our client to have a fair trial and that the alleged victim had made it plain that the incident had never happened and that she would give evidence for her husband. By agreeing to do so she risked prosecution for wasting police time or perverting the course of justice.
    The Judge stopped the prosecution, acquitted our client and made an order for defence costs;
