Andy Fitzpatrick and Richard Brigden will be speaking in Manchester and London respectively in October 2016.

GCN's Andy Fitzpatrick will address the Manchester conference (on 21.10.16) on the subject of "Best Practice in Early Case Preparation".  Andy has a background as a solicitor for 20 years before being called to the bar, and so approaches this subject from the perspective of both counsel and instructing solicitor.  He is a fearless advocate with a particular interest in civil liberties cases and most recently represented 22 families in the Hillsborough inquests (2014-2016) before returning to his criminal practice.


At the London conference (on 28.10.16) GCN's Richard Brigden will provide his insight into "Police Station interviewing" and "Magistrates Court skills".  Richard is a criminal defence advocate with an excellent reputation.  His Crown Court practice is complemented by his specialist work with protestor client groups appearing most recently in a number of high profile anti-fracking cases and it is particularly from his experience this field of practice where he has honed the tips and tactics he will present.
