Alun is a partner in the Criminal Litigation team and specialises in serious or complex financial crime, proceeds of crime litigation and corporate investigations. He has particular knowledge and experience of issues surrounding cross border criminal investigations, corporate crime, and deferred prosecution agreements.
Since joining the firm in 2019 he has advised clients under investigation by the Serious Fraud Office, the National Crime Agency and the police on a wide range of financial crime and proceeds of crime – related matters. He has also acted as an independent legal adviser on internal investigations and, separately, helped conduct a major cross border internal investigation.
Alun joined Kingsley Napley from the public sector where, over a twenty-six-year career as a government lawyer and public prosecutor, he worked in a wide variety of roles including General Counsel at the Serious Fraud Office, the Crown Prosecution Services’ Head of Organised Crime, its Head of Proceeds of Crime and Revenue and Customs Prosecutions Office’s Head of Asset Forfeiture Division. He also worked as a prosecutor in central London and a lawyer in the Attorney General’s Office. He therefore brings to the firm and his clients a deep understanding of the prosecutor’s perspective.
