Jill specialises in advising individuals facing investigation and prosecution by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Serious Fraud Office (SFO). She has developed a particular expertise in representing those being prosecuted for insider dealing.
Jill has recently returned from a 12 month secondment at the FCA where she gained valuable experience of its approach to the investigation and prosecution of serious financial offences. She has also advised two defendants who faced insider dealing charges in large, complex prosecutions brought by the FCA (then known as the FSA). Both were acquitted on all counts.
In addition, Jill has advised numerous individuals facing both compelled and under caution interviews by the FCA and those being investigated for market abuse, criminal market manipulation and numerous offences under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA).
In respect of both "white collar" and general criminal allegations, Jill has extensive day-to-day experience in assisting clients at the police station and provides robust and tactically astute advice in the critical early stages of a criminal investigation. She advises clients facing the full spectrum of criminal charges, from driving offences to GBH, rape, sexual assault and other serious offences.
Cyber-crime also forms an increasing part of Jill’s practice. She has represented those accused of sending malicious communications, possessing or distributing indecent images and other types of computer misuse. She has also advised both companies and employees on potential data breaches and identified practical, pragmatic solutions in what can be a complex area.
