Criminal Law


The Nexus Crime team is headed by the remarkable Michael Mansfield KC who over many years has appeared in many of the landmark cases the criminal justice system has seen, including the successful appeals of the wrongly convicted ‘Birmingham Six’ and the ‘Guildford Four’. Michael is ably supported by the equally formidable Anesta Weekes KC.
