"Apex Chambers houses a strong bench of criminal barristers who both prosecute and defend in serious criminal cases. Members are noted for their expertise in matters relating to historical sex abuse, murder, and large-scale conspiracies to import or supply drugs. The set is also regularly instructed in fraud and dishonesty cases concerning blackmail, banking frauds and high-value thefts."

"Apex Chambers is home to a strong contingent of criminal advocates, with members appearing in some of the region's most notable cases for all parties. Of recent note, Christopher Rees defended former Commonwealth Games swimmer Otto Putland, who was acquitted of rape."
