Profile submitted by Jim Meyer
Ranked as a top criminal solicitor and regulatory enforcement lawyer in the UK, Jim continues to be involved in many leading and high profile cases relating to general crime, white collar crime, serious fraud, financial services investigations, offences under the Bribery Act, money laundering, internal and corporate investigations and health and safety enforcement. Jim is known for his astute and supportive approach to cases, offering sophisticated and above all strategic and pragmatic advice. He recognises the stigma of being involved in an investigation can impact negatively on a client’s business and personal life; because many of the matters on which he advises bring with them unwanted media attention, he is well-versed at managing relations with media through formal and informal channels. Jim’s reputation is based on his pre-occupation with his clients, protecting their rights and interests, and striving to get them the best possible result. He combines the latest investigation, document management and forensic tools and techniques to ensure that no stone is left unturned. Jim joined Tuckers Solicitors in 1995, and became a partner in 2005. He has been a specialist criminal litigator for over 25 years. Jim is a former President of the London Criminal Courts Solicitors’ Association, and has been a co-opted member of the committee for the Solicitors’ Assocation of Higher Court Advocates. He frequently advises the Law Society on issues effecting criminal litigators.
