Acquittal in HMRC Prosecution


Our client Julian Whiteway-Wilkinson was acquitted today of charges of cheating the public revenue by a jury at Wood Green Crown Court.

Our client, the founder and former owner of London Fields Brewery in Hackney, had been prosecuted by HMRC in connection with £730,000 of unpaid tax, but the jury returned not guilty verdicts after defence QC Andrew Campbell-Tiech said his client was the victim of an “abuse of power”. Partner Mark Bowen led the defence team.
