AREAS OF PRACTICE

Bethan has a busy criminal practice, in both prosecution and defence work.  She is particularly experienced in cases involving defendants with mental health issues and examination of vulnerable witnesses. Bethan is a fearless advocate who has received praise from the Bench for her skilled arguments and well researched, thorough approach to cases.

She has developed a considerable practice in cases involving serious sexual offences and multi handed drugs offences. In addition to this, Bethan is experienced in regulatory matters and extradition law. She is also very familiar with post-conviction confiscation proceedings including appellate work and applications to vary existing orders, cash seizure and forfeiture and confiscation enforcement.

Bethan has experience of working as disclosure counsel on large scale fraud and bribery cases with the Serious Fraud Office. As a result of that work, she was recently appointed as junior counsel in an ongoing Serious Fraud Office prosecution.
