Employed Barrister

Caroline is a barrister specialising in financial crime investigations and anti-money laundering regulatory matters.

Caroline has a breadth of experience; notably since joining BCL in 2010 she has advised an individual implicated in a lengthy cross-border investigation concerning the alleged manipulation of LIBOR and has also assisted in defending two individuals charged with conspiracy to cheat HMRC in relation to a multi-million pound film investment scheme fraud – the first prosecution of its kind to be brought.

Most recently, Caroline has developed her regulatory practice in advising regulated persons in relation to their anti-money laundering obligations under the complex 2017 Money Laundering Regulations.

Caroline 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 insolvency, property and general commercial matters in the High Court. Her experience in commercial litigation and civil fraud as well as general crime gives her a comprehensive understanding of the crossover between civil and criminal issues.
