David Walbank QC has published his latest column as the newly minted crime correspondent for the New Law Journal.
His most recent ‘Crime Brief’ focuses on an issue which has vexed the appeal courts for some considerable time: to what extent does an individual who is under criminal investigation but has not actually been charged with any offence have a reasonable expectation of privacy?
He also examines the latest instalment in the litigation arising from the controversial $11 billion takeover of Autonomy Corporation plc by Hewlett Packard and the attempts by US prosecutors to secure the extradition of Autonomy’s founder and CEO, Dr Michael Lynch, on charges of wire fraud, securities fraud and conspiracy.
David has vast experience in the field of business crime (fraud, corruption, money laundering and regulatory offences) and in other heavyweight criminal litigation. He is also the founder and frontman of the updating website [CrimeCast ] on which he presents video case reviews of recent judgments. The site currently hosts nearly 250 free-to-view videos.
