2 Harcourt Buildings is an outstanding set of criminal barristers, with counsel of the highest quality at every level. Members of chambers prosecute and defend in the full range of criminal cases and are noted for their dedication, commanding courtroom performances, and sound advice.
Since the foundation of chambers by the returning British prosecutors from the Nuremberg War Trials, chambers has enjoyed a formidable reputation in London and the South East in all areas of criminal work. We have consolidated our approach as a small, high-quality set following a major refurbishment, rebranding, and the election of new heads of chambers.
Crime: Members of 2 Harcourt Buildings regularly appear in cases involving homicide, terrorism, bribery and corruption, fatal and non-fatal non-accidental infant head injury, rape, serious, prolific, and historic sexual offences (including institutional abuse), and drug dealing on a massive scale. In addition, chambers has a particular specialism in cases investigated under Operation Trident or by the Flying Squad, Serious and Organised Crime Command, and the National Crime Agency.
Recent cases include the prosecution of Fiona Onasanya the MP for Peterborough, Pollard & Patterson two police officers jailed for sabotaging child abuse investigations, the prosecution for misconduct of several members of staff at Medway Secure Training Centre arising from a Panorama undercover investigation, the prosecution of Andrew Soper the former Abbott of Ealing Abbey tried for rape and other sexual offences committed in the 1970s against pupils at St Benedict’s School and the prosecution of Asemota a NCA operation into trafficking of young girls into the sex trade.
Financial crime: Members are regularly instructed to defend and prosecute cases involving offences of banking fraud, diversion fraud, investment fraud (including boiler room fraud), tax fraud (including MTIC fraud), duty evasion, money laundering, bribery and corruption, cyber-crime, and immigration fraud.
