Overview of Practice
Mary Poku is frequently instructed in high profile murder cases. She was leading counsel in the fatal stabbing case of 17 year-old Shauquan Fearon, in SE1 in September 2015. Her client, who faced two murder counts, was acquitted of attempted murder in the initial trial, and eventually no evidence was offered after two retrials in 2016. Her practice also covers fraud cases, like the highly publicised “Bank of Terror” case involving 12 defendants who allegedly defrauded senior citizens to fund ISIS in Syria. Appointed as legal advisor on the National Crime Agency’s cybercrime initiative in Ghana (2014), she advises international Shipping companies and airlines on asset recovery and forfeiture.
