Henry Grunwald QC and Neil Hawes QC successful in securing acquittals in bribery trial

Henry, instructed by Dan Stowers at Shoosmiths, and Neil, instructed by Paul Haycock at Irwin Mitchell, secured the acquittal of their Defendants following a lengthy trial at Southwark Crown Court.

The jury found the two men represented by Henry and Neil, and a third Defendant, not guilty of conspiring with various agents to agree bribes in relation to 27 separate overseas contracts for their company, Sarclad Ltd.

The case is of special interest as a deferred prosecution agreement had previously been reached between the Serious Fraud Office and Sarclad.
