A busy and popular advocate, Paul deals with complex and serious general crime and with difficult sexual cases involving rape and child sexual abuse – the latter often involving historic allegations.

His degree in Business Law gave him a solid grounding in accountancy, business finance and crimes involving companies and company directors.
