From an extensive background in conducting serious and complex criminal cases, Russell is now a leader in the specialist area of Professional Misconduct, defending Professionals facing proceedings following often protracted Misconduct and Criminal investigations.

He enjoys national and international recognition in this specialist field, provides accredited training on behalf of and to the Police Firearms Officers Association, the Police Federation of England & Wales, overseas Police Associations, Counter-Terrorism and all limbs of HM Armed Forces.
Russell is expert in representing those facing allegations of Misconduct in Public Office, Official Secrets Act breaches and those seeking advice in respect of the making of Protected Disclosures.

Russell heads the Firm’s Professional Misconduct Department.
Russell was instructed on behalf of the members of diverse Professions in a number of very high profile cases to include, amongst others, The Hillsborough Enquiry, Operation ELVEDEN, Operation WEETING and Operation Alice (the “Plebgate Affair”).
Owing to the very obvious operational and security sensitivities surrounding matters routinely undertaken and advised upon by Russell, it is not possible to provide further citations or detail.
