Huw’s practice involves the most serious criminal offences, and he is often instructed in large multi-handed cases. He was instructed as a junior taking part in the disclosure process of the Hillsborough investigation, and so is particularly able to deal with disclosure issues in large, paper heavy cases.

He is a Category 4 Prosecutor and is on the specialist panel for Rape and Serious Sexual Offences (RASSO).
