Stephen Ferguson is one of the most sought after defence barristers in the UK. He is best described through recent accolades:

"Stephen Ferguson has a highly regarded advocacy style, a fearless cross examiner, such are his court room performances that many believe his appointment to silk is imminent. His recent work highlights include VAT, tax and mortgage fraud" Chambers & Partners Guide

"Stephen Ferguson's court presence is formidable, demolishing prosecution cases with extraordinary attention to detail, leading to acquittal after acquittal. He is a powerful and persuasive 'must have' advocate" Legal 500

"An absolutely top drawer lawyer who is hard working, impressive in the court room and a real fighter for his clients" Chambers & Partners, Crime Section

"A powerhouse of a lawyer, who produces faultless work and is great on the client side".  Chambers and Partners 2013

Ferguson specialises in the fields of fraud, corruption at the highest level and large scale money laundering. He is regularly instructed in the most serious and high profile cases in the UK. His work often features an international dimension - recent instruction includes front page City frauds, representing a prominent individual in relation to the Equatorial Guinea coup and the attempt to overthrow President Obiang; an extremely sensitive case in Iraq and cases of notoriety across the Globe. He is a master tactician and works relentlessly to ensure that the problems of his clients are dealt with expeditiously and successfully. He is result-obsessed. Ferguson represents well known multi-national companies concerning accounting treatment, corruption, asset seizures and linked issues. Very high profile individuals from the worlds of commerce, celebrity and sport have been successfully and discreetly represented by Ferguson over the years.

Stephen Ferguson was educated at Oxford University. He was a junior Irish rugby international and still follows the sport with a passion. He sits on the board of Caring For Ex Offenders, a UK charity.
