Halsall v Champion Consulting Ltd  EWHC 1079 (QB)
A £6M claim arising out of tax avoidance schemes. This widely reported case is believed to be one of the first claims of this type to reach the courts.
Anthony Barness and Others v Formation Group Pls & Others
Representing one of the 150 defendants in this multi-million pound claim brought by over 260 separate claimants. The claims concern tax avoidance schemes, football agent disputes and allegations of fraudulent misrepresentation.
As a result of the events in the Hillsborough disaster on 15 April 1989 where 96 football fans lost their lives, an application was made by the Attorney-General. The High Court quashed the verdicts in the original inquests and ordered fresh inquests to be held. The fresh inquests took place in 2014. More than 500 witnesses were called and 4,000 pages of documents and hours of videos were shown during the inquest. After 2 years of evidence, the jury found that 96 football fans were unlawfully killed and that the then match Commander Chief Superintendent Duckinfield was responsible for manslaughter by gross negligence.
The inquests are considered to be the longest in English legal history.
