Stephen Vullo QC has been instructed as both leading Counsel and junior Counsel in many of the most high profile cases to have been tried in recent years.
Stephen is regularly identified as the counsel of first choice and previous clients include, for example, The Glasgow Bomber and His Royal Highness Prince Saud Abdulaziz Bin Nasser Al Saud of Saudi Arabia.
He is currently instructed as leading counsel in a number of cases including three allegations of murder. Over the last few years he has focused on the most serious crimes of violence including contract killings and gun crime, terrorism, serious fraud, money laundering and extradition. His skill in cross examining experts is widely recognised and borne out by the fact that even when acting as junior counsel he will regularly deal with all of the expert evidence in the case. The Glasgow Bomber case is one example.
His reputation for strong tactical ability has led to him being instructed to advise in a wide variety of cases outside of criminal work but in related fields of law. Last year he was instructed to advise a well known International Internet Service Provider as to how they could lawfully resist letters of request from the United States Government for disclosure of their clients’ identities after an F.B.I. investigation into fraud and terrorist activity. After some months the F.B.I. withdrew the request.
