Area of Expertise


Alison Hill is a senior solicitor in Bark&co’s criminal team. Alison has over fifteen years’ experience in defending complex criminal cases, including fraud, money laundering and other serious crime prosecuted by the CPS, SFO, HMRC and the FSA (FCA). She has played a leading role in many of the firm’s most high profile cases, including R v Asil Nadir.

Alison recently represented Glenn Vian, the person accused of murdering a private investigator in a car park in Sydenham in 1988.

Other notable cases include a homicide in Basra (not guilty verdict entered at a pre-trial hearing); R v Adams (not guilty verdict entered pre-trial) dubbed “the Clarkenwell crime syndicate”; R v Finch & others (case stayed as an abuse of process); R v Mann & others (case stayed as an abuse of process); a fraud alleged against directors of the Prudential (not guilty verdict entered pre-trial) and the defence of Elizabeth Forsyth (former MD of Asil Nadir’s management company) against charges of money laundering (not guilty verdict entered pre-trial) .

Alison is currently involved in Operation Weeting representing a former Editor of News of The World in relation to charges of mobile phone voicemail hacking in one of the widest publicised journalistic cases of recent times
