Allan Compton KC and Charles Langley acted for KM who was acquitted of murder, manslaughter and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, following an 11 week trial at the Central Criminal Court. KM was alleged to have been part of a group of men who sought out their victim and shot him in revenge for the stabbing of a fellow gang member the same evening.

Claire Mawer acted for AJG, the girlfriend of the stabbed man, charged with perverting the course of justice, by assisting in the burning out of the car used in the shooting. She too was acquitted by the jury.

Allan and Charles were instructed by Paul Cameron and Marcia Lawrence of Bark & Co. Claire was instructed by Sarah Moulange at Taylor Rose solicitors.
