Practice: Fraud, Crime & Regulatory

Summary:

Kerry Broome is instructed to defend and prosecute cases of complex fraud, serious crime, and professional misconduct.  Having built a strong practice as junior counsel, she undertook her first case as leading counsel last year, successfully prosecuting a gang of seven armed robbers over 9 weeks at the Central Criminal Court and is currently instructed as leading counsel in an immigration fraud committed by a Home Office employee.  Kerry has experience both defending and prosecuting corporates and her practice encompasses all elements of restraint and confiscation in both the Crown and High Courts.

Fraud

The mainstay of Kerry’s practice is serious and heavy fraud including banking, company, investment, tax and mortgage frauds.  She is currently instructed by the SFO in relation to the collapse of the hedge fund Weavering Capital and for the last three and a half years she has been junior prosecution counsel in Operation Spenser, a multi-agency prosecution of an extremely complex commercial-scale identity fraud spanning 20 years.  Kerry is also instructed by HMRC’s MTIC team in allegations of missing trader intra-community fraud before the First-tier Tribunal (Tax Chamber).  Kerry has acquired extensive experience dealing with disclosure (including issues of privilege and public interest immunity); electronic presentation of evidence; and obtaining and presenting evidence from abroad.

Crime

Kerry’s criminal practice includes defending and prosecuting a wide range of serious offences including money laundering, health and safety violations, trading standards offences, attempted murder, violence, and sexual offences.  Many of her cases involve complicated expert evidence and cross-examination of young or vulnerable witnesses.  Kerry has defended soldiers before Courts Martial in Germany.  

Kerry is a Grade 4 prosecutor for the CPS and also prosecutes on behalf of the Security Industry Authority.  She is a member of Chambers’ private prosecution team and is currently instructed to advise on the private prosecution of two company employees for fraud.

Regulatory

Kerry frequently appears in professional disciplinary tribunals.  She is regularly instructed to advise on and present cases before the General Dental Council.  She is also instructed to defend doctors facing disciplinary proceedings in the MPTS and has been instructed both to prosecute and defend by the General Chiropractic Council, the Nursing & Midwifery Council and the Royal College of Nursing.  In addition Kerry has experience prosecuting on behalf of the Civil Aviation Authority.

Direct Access

Kerry accepts instructions on a direct access basis and has undertaken a number of such cases.  Most recently she was instructed to defend a company facing prosecution by the Health & Safety Executive.
