Dean Armstrong QC’s outstanding record of success in defending clients accused of VAT and MTIC fraud, underpins his position as a top-rated VAT barrister and QC - and indeed Dean has been involved in cases which have been the largest of their kind in this specialised area of law.
His clients include those who have been acquitted after legal arguments, those who have been acquitted at trial, and those who have been acquitted where Dean was instructed after conviction. Dean believes that there are certain matters which are crucial to be examined in such cases. He stresses the importance of disclosure of material unused by the prosecution and the significance of looking carefully at the position of all of the parties in the so called carousel.
These cases require, in Dean’s view, a great deal of experience in how to deal with material served by the prosecution and how to formulate an effective, focused approach in order to mount a powerful defence.
There is a temptation for those less experienced in these matters to fail to see the “wood for the trees”. Dean’s experience and tactical awareness ensures that this does not happen.
Your case will receive the full skill and attention of one of the UK’s top-rated VAT and MTIC barristers.
