Henry Skudra is a barrister whose independent practice includes money laundering, civil and criminal Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 matters, criminal fraud and regulatory enforcement. Henry is able to work closely with BLL’s lead counsel, Jonathan Fisher QC and other members of the BLL team on leading cases. He has experience from both sides of cases, being instructed by individuals and business as well as HMRC, the Home Office, the Insolvency Service, the CPS, and various police forces.

As well as undertaking litigated cases in courts and in tribunals, Henry provides focused advice on strategic and evidential issues on a regular basis. Called to the Bar in 2012, he often finds himself succeeding against opponents whose call far exceeds his.

Henry began his interest in white collar crime and proceeds of crime matters during his study at the University of Durham. His postgraduate thesis examined fraudulent trading from both a jurisprudential and a practice-based analysis as well as asset recovery. It was described by examiners as a valuable landmark in the discussion of this field.

Henry has published numerous articles in journals including Criminal Law & Justice Weekly, the Journal of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies and Archbold Review. Henry was formerly assistant editor of Banks on Sentence and has lectured on fraudulent trading.

Prior to practising at the Bar, Henry worked at the Law Commission and as a paralegal at a firm of solicitors dealing with several different fields of practice.

Henry is a member of the Proceeds of Crime Lawyers’ Association and is a major scholar of the Inner Temple.
