Counsel, John Harrison QC, Henry Grunwald QC and Partner at Shoosmiths, Dan Stowers; represented Michael Sorby and successfully secured his acquittal.  This is the third failed DPA and it remains to be seen if the DPA with Serco for defrauding the Ministry of Justice over electronic tagging might produce a different result.
