Adam Squibbs

Call: 2016


Adam appears daily in the Crown, Magistrates’ and Youth Courts across a broad spectrum of criminal matters, including violence, dishonesty, drugs, sex, breach of court orders and driving. He also handles extradition cases.

Solicitors have noted that Adam is “extremely hardworking” and say that “he is fantastic at analysing prosecution papers and spotting the weaknesses at an early stage”. With this approach, Adam has a track record in making successful submissions of no case to answer, securing acquittals at trial without the defendant needing to give evidence and persuading the CPS to discontinue cases before the first hearing.

He also handles extradition cases be deleted from the first paragraph, and a second paragraph be inserted that reads as follows: Adam also handles extradition cases, acting for both requested persons and judicial authorities. He spent 12 months on secondment to the CPS Extradition Unit, where he appeared before Westminster Magistrates’ Court and the Administrative Court on a range of extradition matters, and was a reviewing lawyer in respect of a large number of Part 1 cases.

In court, Adam fearlessly represents his clients and “always goes the extra mile”. One particular Crown Court judge described his submissions as “well structured, well presented and impressive”.
