John Price QC both defends and prosecutes in all manner of serious criminal cases in courts throughout the country.
He has acquired over the years particular experience in the conduct of criminal cases in the field of civil aviation, often involving corporate defendants, including major airlines, charged with regulatory offences, relating, for example to the carriage by air of dangerous goods.
More recently, since taking silk, he has appeared in a number of co-called cold-cases, including a case of murder from 1966 [R v David Burgess] and a retrial following the quashing of an acquittal by the Court of Appeal [R v Mark Weston].
He appears regularly before special courts in the Court of Appeal, concerning appeals on cases of recognised public importance, for example: CPS v F [Abuse of process arising from delay] and R v H [sentencing in historic cases of sexual abuse].
