Nutan joined Chambers as a third six pupil in July 2018 having completed pupillage within the Crown Prosecution Service.
Nutan spent the majority of her pupillage in the Crown Court taking conduct of a variety of cases involving violence, controlled drugs, firearms, sexual offences and offences of dishonesty. Nutan has assisted in numerous jury trials which included undertaking some witness handling and she has also taken conduct of a full range of hearings in the Magistrates’ Court including those involving youths.
Prior to pupillage, Nutan was a Legal Assistant in the Regulatory department at Kingsley Napley Solicitors investigating fitness to practise matters for the Health and Care Professions Council. Nutan was also a Civil Litigation Paralegal at Hickman and Rose Solicitors where she assisted in actions against the police, judicial reviews and inquests (acting for the bereaved families), namely that of Darren Neville who died a few months after being restrained by the police as well as the In Amenas Inquest which investigated the deaths that occurred during the terrorist attack on a BP gas plant in Algeria.
Nutan’s training and varied experience thus far has enabled her to become a robust and thorough advocate who is able to build a rapport with a variety of people. She aims to utilise her versatility to build a prosecution and defence criminal practice alongside other areas that Chambers specialises in such as professional discipline.
R v E  – Basildon Crown Court – represented a Defendant who had pleaded guilty to committing actual bodily harm, dangerous driving, possession of Class A and B drugs, drink driving and a breach of a suspended sentence order (SSO). Successfully argued that it was unjust to activate the SSO and that it was appropriate to impose standalone suspended sentence orders for the remaining matters.
R v M  – Romford Magistrates’ Court – secured an acquittal in the youth court for a 17 year old charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm.
R v S  – Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court – secured an acquittal for a dwelling burglary charge. Whilst the Defendant accepted entering the premises and taking items, it was successfully argued that the legal elements of the offence had in fact not been made out.
R v O  – Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court – secured convictions for six charges of assault by beating and criminal damage in a domestic context out of a total of eleven charges where the Crown had proceeded in the absence of the main complainant, namely the ex-partner.
