Jennifer Josephs

Call: 2000

Introduction

A popular choice with both the prosecution and the defence, Jennifer has developed a successful and strong criminal and regulatory practice since she started her career at St Philips in 2000.

Jennifer is instructed in criminal cases at all levels, in particular drug dealing conspiracies, serious and organised crime, fraud and sexual offences. She is an accredited rape prosecutor and is frequently instructed by the Complex Casework Unit (CCU), often in cases which are level 4, including prosecuting some of the largest drug dealing investigations that the West Midlands have had to deal with

She is often instructed on behalf of the Defence to represent clients who are especially vulnerable through age or mental illness, and valued for her calm and considerate approach, even in the most difficult of circumstances. She has a friendly and pragmatic attitude, winning the confidence of both lay and professional clients.

Jennifer has developed a good practice in regulatory work in the Magistrates and Crown Court, building on the strong civil practice she had prior to specialising in crime. She has particular experience of forfeiture and confiscation orders, Closure Orders, Environmental Prosecutions, Health and Safety prosecutions and other general regulatory breaches as well as inquests and disciplinary hearings.

Jennifer is qualified and available to accept direct access instructions.

Out of court Jennifer regular attends the College of Law and the local universities to train students. She sits on the Bar Council as the Midlands Circuit Representative and is an active member of the CBA.
