Geoff Robertson was born in Australia, but came to London in 1970. He made his name as the fearless defender of Oz magazine at the celebrated trial and went on to engage in some of the most newsworthy cases in recent history. He has defended John Stonehouse, Cynthia Payne, Salman Rushdie, Kate Adie, Arthur Scargill, Daniel Sullivan, GAY NEWS, 'The Romans of Britain', Niggaz with Attitude', and a pair of foetal earrings. The book includes accounts of recent cases includes accounts of recent cases including the defence of a West London gym owner against the Prince of Wales, the Matrix Churchill affair, and the defence of the GUARDIAN in the cash-for-questions affair. Hugely readable, funny, scandalou, revelatory, this will become one of the great books about the law. It will cause considerable controversy with its disclosure of some of the hidden details behind some very high-profile recent legal cases.
