Will is a barrister with a range of experience in general and white collar crime.

Will was called to the Bar in 2013 and completed pupillage at a leading criminal set, where he represented clients in a range of hearings and trials in the magistrates’ court, crown court and youth court. 

His experience covers the full spectrum of general crime, from road traffic matters and drug offences, to allegations of violence and dishonesty and prosecutions for sexual offences, often involving vulnerable clients. Will also has experience of financial and serious and complex crime, including working as part of the defence teams for Rebekah and Charlie Brooks in the phone-hacking trial and for a broker prosecuted by the SFO for allegedly conspiring to manipulate LIBOR.

Prior to joining Kingsley Napley, Will was instructed as independent counsel by the Serious Fraud Office for three months to carry out a legal professional privilege (LPP) review in connection with a bribery investigation. Will therefore possesses a thorough understanding of LPP and is well placed to advise on this often complex area of law.
