" . . . a brilliant advocate who robustly defends his clients. Clients always like Nick because he he is meticulously prepared, gives clear advice, and he makes them feel at ease."

(Legal 500, 2024)

I am Nick Barraclough, a specialist criminal defence barrister who represents people facing charges in courts and tribunals. Based at 2 Bedford Row, one of the top ranked sets of barristers in London, I'm an expert trial lawyer.

Highly regarded as an expert criminal defence barrister - and named as a leader in the field by Legal Directories - I gained my experience fighting trials in Crown Courts throughout England and Wales. Most of my work involves serious and privately funded cases, though I am instructed in all types and size of case, and will undertake legal aid work.
