Eamon has experience of advising and acting for individuals and corporates facing investigations and enforcement action brought by the Serious Fraud Office, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Financial Conduct Authority, and the Metropolitan Police in relation to a range of business crime and general crime matters.
Eamon joined the firm in 2018 having worked at the Serious Fraud Office, where he was an investigative lawyer working on large complex bribery, corruption, fraud and money laundering cases involving parallel investigations across various jurisdictions. During this time, he had experience of preparing and participating in ‘dawn raids’, advising investigators, conducting interviews, and liaising with overseas prosecutors under the MLA and EIO regimes.
Prior to the Serious Fraud Office, Eamon trained at an international City law firm, where he worked on similar criminal and regulatory matters, and was involved in drafting submissions in the case Arif Hussein v Financial Conduct Authority, challenging the FCA’s decision to pursue action against a junior trader in relation to LIBOR manipulation rather than the managers who instructed him. He also wrote articles for publication, as well as a brief to Parliament on behalf of a client in the art industry in response to a new criminal offence of dealing in unlawfully exported cultural property. Eamon read Law at the University of Cambridge and is a keen musician.
Eamon speaks French and is a member of the Young Fraud Lawyers Association.
