This was a complex inquest which involved the tragic death of a young student who had attended a conference in Germany. The matter received ongoing national and international coverage. Aron also has experience in actions against the police, mental health and SEN cases.

He has significant experience in all areas of criminal defence with a particular expertise in major fraud and appellate work. He is regularly instructed to represent in some of the country’s most high profile cases.

He is increasingly instructed to represent those charged with large-scale financial crimes, including defending in the largest ever DWP prosecution, and those facing complex Proceeds of Crime applications. He is also regularly instructed in customs and excise prosecutions, especially drug importation and people smuggling cases, including Birtain’s biggest Cannabis importation.

Aron has previously worked extensively in Consumer Protection and Trading Standards. He has acted as defence and prosecution counsel. He previously advised local councils as to the merits of these prosecutions, the manner of prosecutions and the evidential burdens to be met when such prosecutions are undertaken.

Prior to joining Chambers Aron worked for NGOs advising on aspects of International Human Rights and International Criminal Law. He has worked, lectured and advised in both areas all over the world.
