Areas of Expertise: Crime
Julian Nutter was called to the Bar in 1979 and practised for over 20 years from chambers in the Temple in London. Subsequently he returned to the North, developing parallel practices in the Isle of Man (where he is a Registered Legal Practitioner and acts as consultant advising on the interface between Manx law and English law) and in Liverpool where he appears regularly for the defence of people accused in the most serious cases involving sexual offences and heavy crime, including conspiracy, serious fraud, corruption, drugs, firearms, blackmail, kidnapping, murder and serious assaults.
In addition he has considerable experience of judicial review arising from the most serious criminal proceedings in a case that eventually led to his successful appearance before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and in what is now the Supreme Court.
He has an analytical mind and is prepared to apply himself to the analysis of potential evidence of those who have been told that they may be prosecuted but have yet to be charged, helping them to get "ahead of the game" and to foresee what they may be asked about and how and why they may be asked about it.
