Senior Associate Lucy Winter has begun a flurry of new hires in Vardags this August, joining the Criminal Defence department.
Lucy advises clients in all aspects of criminal law, with particular expertise in defending clients accused of serious sexual or violent offences. She is also experienced in representing clients facing investigation for complex fraud matters, including boiler room frauds, money laundering and defrauding HMRC.
The particular strength of Vardags’ Criminal Law Team is in pre-trial early-stage intervention, and Lucy, like the department head Rob Conway, has a very high success rate in avoiding prosecution for her clients when instructed at the very first stage of investigations.
The three man team are expected to have a busy year ahead.
