One of the trials resulted in a conviction for a murder that had occurred 20 years before the defendant was arrested and extradited from the United States of America.
Julian prosecuted a so-called “vigilante” case which made the newspaper headlines recently and was even remarked on by Auberon Waugh in the Daily Telegraph. He also has wide experience in undercover Police operations and cases involving covert listening devices.
He has considerable experience as a criminal advocate.
