Corker Binning has added a new partner to its Criminal Litigation practice in London to further strengthen its offering and expertise in the defence of individuals subject to investigation and prosecution.
Paul Morris joins from BCL Solicitors where he spent 19 years, several of which was as Head of the Serious and General Crime practice.
He has extensive experience in complex and serious crime, defending a range of general criminal matters including homicide, sexual offences, blackmail, drugs offences and assault.
He is particularly noted for his experience in crisis and reputation management, advising professionals from the finance, music, medical, sports, political and teaching professions in relation to serious and complex investigations and prosecutions.
Morris has previously defended Sir Cliff Richard. He also acted for former ITV presenter the late Caroline Flack and the golfer Thorbjorn Olesen.
Paul Morris, Partner in the Criminal Litigation practice at Corker Binning, said:
“I look forward to working with my new colleagues at Corker Binning to help further develop the Criminal Litigation practice, which is a key area of focus for the firm’s future growth.”
David Corker, Partner at Corker Binning, said:
“The Firm is proud to welcome Paul to our criminal litigation practice, which we continue to build since promoting Danielle Reece-Greenhalgh to partner earlier this year. We have no doubt that Paul will be a great addition to the team, and we look forward to working with him.”
Corker Binning has been building its Criminal Litigation practice in recent months. Paul Morris’ hire follows the promotion of General Crime lawyer Danielle Reece-Greenhalgh to the firm’s partnership in April this year.
