R v A (2021)
A 5-day trial in which Brooke successfully prosecuted an individual charged with causing Grievous Bodily Harm during a ‘one-punch’ incident.
R v W (2019)
Brooke represented a client facing charges of Controlling and Coercive Behaviour in a multi-handed matter. The case involved two vulnerable complainants and a vulnerable co-defendant. Brooke successfully sought third party disclosure from the Local Authority which, combined with medical evidence, supported her client’s case and achieved an acquittal without the need for the complainants to give evidence.
R v S & D (2019)
Brooke was led in a multi-handed, false-accounting matter over the course of 3 weeks. The case required analysis of over 10,000 pages of evidence, including expert evidence on numerous issues. Brooke had to carefully and diligently manage and review disclosure of unused material and was praised by leading counsel and the trial Judge for her quick mastery of the evidence and the issues despite being instructed at the last minute.
