Andrew Radcliffe QC


A specialist in fraud and "white collar" crime, most of Andrew Radcliffe's work in this country in recent years has been defending in serious fraud and fraud related cases. He also has considerable experience in murder and other cases of serious crime.

Since taking silk in 2000, his cases have included most aspects of fraud and allied offences, including allegations of price fixing, insider dealing, corruption, money laundering, MTIC fraud, duty evasion and advance fee fraud as well as confiscation.

He acts in regulatory matters, for example on behalf of the Football Association, and regularly works in the Cayman Islands, instructed by the Director of Public Prosecutions there both in an advisory capacity and to appear in court. Recent work in that jurisdiction includes various allegations of corruption, misconduct in a public office and fraud, as well as murder and firearms cases.

He was a contributor to the CBA's responses to the Law Commission in respect of the review of the law relating to fraud and dishonesty and, more recently, the review of the laws of conspiracy and attempt. He is the author of two chapters on insider dealing and regulatory offences, respectively, in "Fraud: Law, Practice and Procedure" (published by LexisNexis in 2012).
