Outstanding results for Reeds in Operation Nautical

Reeds are delighted to be able to report three more successes in defending ‘grooming ring’ allegations, following the extraordinary results in “Operation Nautical” 1 and 2.

After a 3 month trial, ‘J’, represented by our Oxford based Head of Chambers Lucy Tapper and Lisa Wilding QC of Furnival Chambers, was unanimously acquitted of all charges he faced.

In addition, on 25th January, ‘L’ and ‘M’ were also cleared of all charges they were due to face in a second trial (represented by our in-house Counsel Peter Du Feu and Doughty Street’s Andrew Hall QC, and Lucy Tapper respectively).

An important and very well-deserved result for all those involved.

Our Crown Court advocates are experienced in expertly defending these often difficult, and very sensitive cases.  We are frequently instructed to advise and represent clients facing allegations of this kind, and many others of a serious sexual nature.  For more information about the services we can provide in these kinds of cases, contact your local branch of our integrated chambers, or alternatively click here to make an enquiry, and one of our clerks will contact you.
