Laura Buchan, originally instructed by JBR Morgan, has had her client’s sentence substantially reduced in the Court of Appeal. Appearing before Lord Justice Bean, Mr Justice Choudhury and HHJ Potter, she successfully argued that the sentence was manifestly excessive, and obtained a reduction of 10 months.

Richard Barton, Joint Head of Chambers, said, ‘Going to the Court of Appeal is daunting for anyone, and Laura showed real courage to pursue this matter through to its conclusion in order to obtain a fair result for her client’.
