Gainsborough Law were instructed by a high net worth individual who faced a serious assault allegation. A conviction would have impacted upon his employment, travel and charity commitments. Camilla Whitehouse and Colin Witcher worked together to offer a reassuring and comprehensive representation of the defendant. The same culminated in detailed representations, which persuaded the Crown to discontinue proceedings. The Client had previously been represented by leading Queen’s Counsel before Colin took over conduct of the case and worked with Camilla on seeking to avoid a trial and neutralise all potential reputational damage concerns.
