Maurice MacSweeney

Crime Business Development Director

Maurice joined Doughty Street in September 2014 to lead its newly restructured criminal clerking team.  He manages key client relationships, and has overall responsibility for implementing our strategy on the development of our serious crime and appeals (both domestic and international), regulatory and financial crime, and extradition work.  He is also involved in developing the professional regulation work our members undertake.

Maurice will be pleased to advise on enquiries from solicitors in private practice, in-house counsel, licensed access and public access clients on new matters, on suitable choices of counsel, and on fees.  He is always interested to have feedback on the service our barristers and clerks provide for our clients.   

Prior to joining Doughty Street he spent over five years working at a 2 Hare Court (the Chambers of Jonathan Laidlaw QC), a leading criminal and regulatory set, which he joined from a UK-listed global recruitment company where he sourced partners and associates for City and International firms.  Before that he worked for a specialist firm of fraud solicitors.  

He graduated in English and Law from the University of Cambridge, and is a member of the Legal Practice Managers' Association, the Chartered Institute of Marketing, and the Financial Services Lawyers' Association.
