Phil Smith is a solicitor of 25 years’ standing, with deep expertise in UHNW financial crime fraud and money-laundering cases. Career highlights abound, but for Smith ‘securing the acquittal of the former deputy editor of the News of the World Neil Wallis following a month-long Old Bailey trial after a five-year investigation and him giving evidence on three occasions to the Leveson Inquiry, was very satisfying’. He notes ‘an influx of cases reflecting the increasingly diverse foreign investment in London’, in particular ‘increased investment activity from HNWs based in Turkey over the past 12 months’. Individuals from China and neighbouring regions are also increasingly in need of the assistance of this ‘very fine lawyer’.
