Atalanta is a caseworker based at our Oxford Office.

She assists our Partner and Head of Complex Crime, Julian Richards. Her role involves evidence analysis, briefing counsel, drafting instructions for expert witnesses and attending court or prison where needed. Atalanta currently contributes to a diverse caseload, ranging from drugs, money laundering and firearms conspiracies, to murder or cryptocurrency theft.

Atalanta graduated top of her class at university, obtaining a first-class honours degree in Law. Whilst studying, she volunteered as a legal advisor at her university’s pro bono clinic. There she worked on a variety of civil matters, assisting those who could not afford to pay for representation.
