Employed Barrister

Caroline is a barrister specialising in business crime and regulatory enforcement, with a particular focus on criminal fraud.

Since joining BCL in 2010, her notable cases have included advising an individual implicated in the ongoing cross-border investigations concerning the alleged manipulation of LIBOR, as well as assisting in the defence of an individual charged with conspiracy to cheat HMRC in relation to a film investment scheme, the first prosecution of its kind to be brought by HMRC.

Following completion of a BA in Modern History (Hons) at the University of Bristol, Caroline completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Law at City University, London and then the Bar Vocational Course at BPP Law School, London. She was called to the Bar in 2005 and thereafter completed a general criminal pupillage following three years’ experience working as a civil court advocate appearing in county courts across the country, including the High Court in cases involving insolvency, property and general commercial matters.

Her experience in commercial litigation, civil fraud and general crime gives her a comprehensive understanding of the crossover between the civil and criminal law.
