One ITL, the Chambers of Marion Smullen, are delighted to announce that with effect from 1st January 2017 we will be merging with the Chambers of William Mousley QC at 2 Kings Bench Walk.
Drugs cases are commonplace in the magistrates, crown and appellate courts, and members of chambers have a wealth of experience in this area of law. Despite their prevalence, offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (which encompasses the supply, cultivation and production of controlled drugs) often involve difficult legal issues such as joint possession, as well as complex ancillary considerations such as confiscation; these require a skilled and experienced eye. The barristers at 1ITL can offer this, as well as dedication to fearlessly protecting the interests of our clients. Additionally, many such cases require a sure touch in front of a jury, and our barristers excel in this regard.
Individual members of chambers have recently defended in a number of notable cases across the country, including:
We accept instructions from solicitors, public bodies and via public access.
