Celebrating 25 years as a criminal law specialist, Tuckers’ Senior Partner Richard Egan leads the ‘Special Casework Department’, established to deal specifically with high profile clients, HNWs and cases of particular complexity or difficulty. Recently shortlisted by Lawyer magazine for their private client partner of the year award, Egan is the go-to guy for high profile clients, companies, financial institutions, government authorities and HNWs accused of criminal activity, as well as those facing professional regulation and discipline or requiring advice on risk management and compliance. Tuckers have enjoyed another fantastic year, but remain keen to keep some of their success discreet. ‘Our biggest successes you will never know about, which is why our clients know they can trust us,’ says Egan. ‘The best result we can achieve for our clients is to act for them without the wider world and media ever being aware there has been an issue.’ But there is more to legal advice these days than criminal defence. ‘There is a popular misconception among those outside of the industry that criminal lawyers exclusively represent criminals. In fact, a significant proportion of our time is devoted to representing entirely innocent individuals who face complex allegations that are most frequently life-changing in their potential consequence.’
