Narita Bahra
Narita is recognised as a leading Silk in these areas, making her one of the most in demand defence lawyers in the UK. Narita has been instructed in some of the most significant criminal cases and has extensive experience dealing with disclosure issues. She has cemented a reputation as a barrister who can skilfully deal with the most difficult of disclosure cases. Narita has published a book on tackling disclosure issues arising in both the Magistrates and Criminal Courts.

Her excellent track record, high success rate and commitment to fighting fearlessly for her client’s best interests make her the leading choice in high profile disclosure cases. She regularly appears on Sky News, ITV, Channel 4 and BBC news as a legal correspondent and is a regular author and contributor to legal journals.

Several of her successes have become headline news: notably those where Narita has successfully challenged prosecution disclosure failings, and where she has exposed failings of expert witnesses. Narita is regularly requested to be a legal correspondent for various news outlets regarding these areas of expertise.

Narita now specialises in highly complex and challenging cases, with particular emphasis on Financial Crime (such as fraud, money laundering and business crime) and Serious Crime (such as murder, terrorism and organised crime). However she is highly experienced in all areas of criminal defence and prosecution, and recognises that for clients there is no such thing as a “minor” criminal charge.

Narita regularly appears as an expert adviser to Sky News, ITV News, BBC News; writes expert articles for legal journals such as Counsel and Legal 360; and frequently writes or gives interviews for the mainstream press such as the Times and Financial Times. She published her first legal book: A Practitioner’s Handbook on Disclosure in late 2019.
