He is highly experienced in acting for individuals being investigated and prosecuted for sexual, dishonesty, violence, drugs and road traffic offences. He defends professional clients, such as sports stars and media personalities, facing high-profile and complex criminal matters, where reputation management is often paramount.

Daniel regularly provides expert legal advice and assistance to those being interviewed under caution by the police and other investigatory agencies. He is effective at making representations, which avoid prosecution and result in no further action or lead to a case being discontinued during the court proceedings.

As a litigator and an advocate, Daniel is tactically astute when it comes to effective case preparation.

Prior to joining BCL in 2017, Daniel gained experience in business crime, health and safety, regulatory and road traffic law at two City firms, where he was instructed in notable matters.
