Timothy Compton


BSB Barristers’ Register

Tim’s practice covers all areas of criminal work but he has a particular interest in cases involving sexual offences and offences committed against children. Of necessity, due to years when he covered Children Act cases, he has an expert knowledge of social services procedures and materials, and the principles and practice governing Public Interest Immunity matters.

His systematic approach to criminal litigation has, as its cornerstone, thorough preparation and pro-active case management. He prides himself on  meticulous attention to detail, which has time and again paid off in paper heavy cases and those that may involve large amounts of unused material.

Tim has been instructed, over many years, to prosecute in a number of large police operations and these have often necessitated pre-arrest case management.  Such case have inevitably involved extensive PII considerations.
