As a murder barrister Nigel Power QC has a wealth of experience acting for those charged with murder. There is no more serious charge and no more worrying allegation to face. Nigel has appeared in a very large number of murder cases, many of which had national press coverage.

Nigel appeared in the Anthony Walker racially aggravated murder trial in Liverpool and has experience of complex medical, scientific and telephonic evidence. He has a particular expertise with DNA evidence and is familiar with all of the recent developments with mixed DNA profiling.

Chambers and Partners 2014, the world’s leading directory for lawyers, said of Nigel that: “He is highly regarded for his expertise on complex and high-profile cases such as gangland murders.”

Nigel represented Tony Downes when he was acquitted of the murder of Lucy Hargreaves despite compelling telephone evidence, and represented Patrick Smeda when he was acquitted of the murder of Liam Kelly, who was shot dead in Toxteth when only 15 years of age.

Recently Nigel Power QC has had notable success in murder cases. He represented Ijah Lavelle-Moore, who was found Not Guilty of murder and three attempted murders after a gangland shooting in a pub car park in Nottingham. Read the Press Report here and for more details see Nigel’s Blog entry here.

He also obtained Not Guilty verdicts on murder and manslaughter charges representing Christopher Curran, who was alleged to have murdered a 65-year-old female pensioner while burgling her house, even though the defendant entered the house during the burglary and helped to remove the safe as she lay dying in the bedroom.
