Bark&co Ranked in Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide for Financial Crime25.07.2018
We are proud to announce that we have been ranked in Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide for Financial Crime.
Chambers and Partners noted “Bark&co is well regarded for its criminal fraud practice and the team has great experience defending high net worth clients in high-profile financial crime litigation cases. “They’re very knowledgeable in the area of money laundering, anything to do with financial wrongdoing,” says a barrister, adding: “I think they’re considered as being a firm that are in the top echelon for these type of cases. They’re very client-driven in the sense that it’s not unusual for them to put forward five barristers for a client to choose from, so the client is then in the position that they have made the decision rather than being told what’s happening.”
“They’re very hands-on with the clients – they always have a knack of making the clients feel at ease very early on and that just makes the whole system run a lot smoother,” reports one interviewee. Another praises their “great strength and breadth in the area.”
In addition to this, Giles Bark-Jones has been singled out as a notable practitioner, Chambers and Partners had this to say:
The “absolutely fantastic” Giles Bark-Jones wins praise for his expertise in criminal fraud cases. “Giles’ real strength is his strategic overview and his tactical acumen. His other real strength is his fighting spirit and unwillingness ever to back away from a fight – unless it is tactically advantageous to do so,” reports one interviewee. Another describes him as “a very astute solicitor and businessman.” “He is fearless when it comes to his pursuit of justice,” says a barrister, adding: “He’s a very responsive person, he doesn’t delegate tasks to other people, he gets involved himself. He’s fearless in taking on the prosecution and getting the best results for his clients.”
Ditesh Patel, Director of Business Development said “We are incredibly proud that the hard work that we do for our High Net Worth clients has been recognised. We understand the unique needs that High Net Worth Individuals have, and it is important to ensure that our clients are receiving the best advice for their individual circumstances.”
