Civil and criminal set Seven Bedford Row has hired Pump Court Chambers tenant Luke Blackburn in a boost to its fraud and criminal team.
Blackburn, a junior of 12 years' call, specialises in criminal fraud work, including money laundering cases and confiscation work under the Proceeds of Crime Act. He also does disciplinary work before bodies such as military court martials and has a general criminal defence practice. The chambers' chief executive Robert Graham-Campbell said Blackburn's experience matches those areas targeted for growth. Joanne Harris
