Acquittal of Bouncer from Top London Nightclub.


Tom Edwards represented a bouncer from one of the capital’s most exclusive nightclubs accused of GBH at Southwark Crown Court. He was alleged to have broken the leg of a member of the public trying to get into the venue.

Disclosure requests at the outset of the trial revealed significant lies told by the complainant to the officer in charge of the investigation. It also revealed that he had been heavily intoxicated at work shortly before, causing damage at his workplace and fighting with a colleague.

The defendant was unanimously acquitted following a short trial.

Tom was instructed by Dharsh Lokaswaran of Bark & Co.
