Crime:

Chloe has a busy practice encompassing all areas of Criminal Litigation in the Crown Court. She is a Category 3 Prosecutor and is on the Crown Prosecution Service Rape and Child Sexual Abuse list of specialist prosecutors.  Crime is a significant proportion of Chloe’s practice and she regularly appears, for both the prosecution and the defence, in a range of cases dealing with serious crime including: murder, manslaughter, serious sexual assaults, drugs and violence.
