Karl is a barrister and was called to the Bar in 2011. He specialised in the areas of business crime and associated regulatory work before joining the firm in 2019.
During his time in independent practice, Karl was instructed on a broad range of business crime matters including the FCA’s global FX investigation and as junior counsel to a Barclay’s derivatives trader charged with conspiracy to manipulate LIBOR. He was involved in cases, both for and against, the SFO, the NCA, HMRC and various local authorities. Karl spent ten months seconded to the Global Investigations team of an international investment bank where he advised on whistleblowing, internal investigations and regulatory compliance. He is therefore experienced in cross-jurisdictional matters involving the SEC, DOJ, BaFin and OFAC. Karl was also regularly instructed in extradition, confiscation, civil asset recovery and related enforcement and account freezing proceedings.
Prior to his career at the UK Bar, Karl held various legal roles in the UK, the Middle-East and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
