John Harrison QC

Call To The Bar: 1994


John Harrison QC is both a regulatory law and criminal law specialist known for his capability to handle complex cases with a clear, pragmatic approach. John is a highly-regarded barrister, earning his reputation through working on cases involving substantial factual and legal complexity.

Called to the bar in 1994, John has developed a strong practice, spanning over twenty years, encompassing all aspects of serious crime; but is well noted for his expertise in complex fraud and regulatory work. John’s background in civil litigation and commercial law makes him particularly well placed in assisting clients in a wide range of litigation areas, including but not limited to health and safety, environmental, and professional disciplinary.

Whilst predominantly based in the North of England, John maintains a practice with national scope. John is the NE Circuit representative on the Bar Council International Law Working Group and a member of the Attorney General’s list of prosecution advocates; although, it should be made aware that the vast majority of his work is as defence counsel.
