Edward Henry KC has just finished defending in the largest money-laundering allegation in British criminal history. Edward defended one of eight people accused of being part of an alleged £266 million money laundering enterprise.

On 14 December 2022, after a seven-and-a-half-month trial, the jury failed to reach a verdict at Leeds Crown Court in respect of Edward’s client, a director of the bullion dealer Fowler Oldfield. The accused, a man of good character, was said to be a joint coordinator, laundering the proceeds of criminal conduct, in which couriers deposited astronomical amounts of cash into Fowler Oldfield’s accounts between January 2014 and September 2016. This was, to date, the biggest money-laundering allegation ever to be tried. 

Edward led Arabella MacDonald & Brad Lewis of QEB Hollis Whiteman and was instructed by Ian Lewis of JMW Solicitors
