Stephen’s reputation as one of the UK’s top barristers defending serious crime derives from his extensive experience and proven track record defending clients accused of the most serious criminal allegations, including terrorism, homicide (murder and manslaughter), historic child abuse cases, large scale drugs supply/importation, armed robbery, money laundering, and all forms of organised crime and sexual offences.
Stephen Vullo is a criminal barrister who is regularly identified as the counsel of first choice when defending serious crime allegations. His clients include The Glasgow Bomber and His Royal Highness Prince Saud Abdulaziz Bin Nasser Al Saud of Saudi Arabia.
A proactive approach to defending client
Stephen’s emphasis is on early (often pre-charge) and proactive case preparation, directing the case to ensure his clients are in the best possible position before a decision to prosecute is taken and any trial begins.
Once there has been a decision to prosecute, Stephen will focus on the unfolding picture of disclosure by the prosecuting authority. It is through his careful and critical analysis of all the information revealed that he is able to identify exculpatory evidence that has been overlooked or lost, and damaging evidence that has been improperly obtained and susceptible to an application to exclude.
