We are pleased to announce that on 1 April 2022, Danielle Reece-Greenhalgh will become a Partner at the firm, and Maia Cohen-Lask and Nick Barnard will become Of Counsel. Danielle, Maia and Nick all started their legal careers at Corker Binning and their promotions reflect their achievements as first-class lawyers.
Danielle Reece-Greenhalgh qualified as a solicitor in 2016 after working as a paralegal and completing her training contract with the firm. Danielle acts for individuals across the full spectrum of criminal offences, but has particular experience in domestic abuse, violent and sexual offences and possession/distribution of indecent images. Her practice also encompasses the defence of extradition requests and the removal of INTERPOL red notices. Last year Chambers & Partners recognised her expertise in these areas, naming her as the only “Star Associate” in London for both Crime and Extradition.
Maia Cohen-Lask was a paralegal at the firm in 2012-2013 and then practised as a self-employed barrister at the criminal bar. Maia re-joined the firm in 2015 and has since developed significant expertise in both financial and general crime, representing clients in some of the largest and most high-profile cases in recent years, including investigations and prosecutions by the SFO, NCA and the police. Last year Legal 500 described Maia as a “rising star” in white-collar crime.
Nick Barnard was a paralegal at the firm in 2011-12, after completing his training contract at a top 100 London firm, Nick returned to Corker Binning in 2015. Since then, Nick has honed his skills by advising clients on a range of criminal and regulatory matters, including FCA investigations into many forms of market misconduct, HMRC investigations into allegations of tax fraud, SFO investigations concerning fraud and overseas bribery and several major cross-border cases.
Corker Binning is proud to develop talented young lawyers because we believe that home-grown talent plays an essential role in shaping the future leadership of the firm, as well as demonstrating our commitment to delivering high quality and personable client service.
