Senghin has developed an impressive criminal practice encompassing both prosecution and privately funded defence instructions. He is especially valued for his consummate dedication and responsiveness. He is a barrister to whom other barristers turn in cases involving complex or novel points of law.
Senghin’s current instructions include the defence of the solicitor charged in the prosecution arising from the Hillsborough Stadium disaster of 1989. (Led by Jonathan Goldberg QC)
Senghin recently represented former Royal Marine Sergeant Blackman ("Marine A") at his successful appeal against conviction where murder was reduced to manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility. This was the conclusion of nearly two years of work, funded by a Daily Mail campaign and promoted by Frederick Forsyth and Richard Drax MP amongst others. (Led by Jonathan Goldberg QC and Jeffrey Israel)
Senghin was appointed to the SFO Prosecution “B” Panel in 2017 and has been a Grade 3 CPS Panel Advocate since 2014. Senghin is responsible for IT in chambers and his ability to add value in his professional work through his proficiency in IT has been noted frequently. In appropriate cases, Senghin may accept instructions directly from members of the public, without the need for a solicitor.
