Emma has particular knowledge of the law relating to LPP and has acted as independent counsel in a number of HMRC and SFO investigations, including attending searches to adjudicate in situ.

Between 2007 and 2009 she was engaged as independent counsel in a large scale LPP review for one of the SFO’s large investigations into allegations of bribery and corruption by a well-known FTSE 250 Plc. She attended the company premises on the day of the search to adjudicate on LPP. She was subsequently been involved in reviewing electronic material imaged from a number of the company’s computers.

Emma has been instructed on behalf of a body conducting its own private prosecutions to conduct an LPP review of material supplied to the CCRC. She has also recently advised a party involved in the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) in respect of LPP.

She has also advised private clients in receipt of production orders on LPP.
