Jennie Ferrario is a very experienced advocate in the regulatory and criminal fields of practice. Having qualified as a solicitor in 1996 she worked for Manchester solicitors specialising in criminal, professional misconduct and regulatory work. She became a higher rights advocate within 2 years of qualifying and transferred to the Bar in 2007. She was employed for some time by The Environment Agency and Greater Manchester Police as their Sole In house Counsel where she prosecuted in jury trials and advised on complex investigations involving partnership agencies including the Health and Safety Executive, the Highways Agency, The Department of the Environment Fisheries and Rural Affairs and the Serious Organised Crime Agency. Jennie would regularly be called upon by these partnership agencies to draft charges often in multi handed cases.
During her time at Greater Manchester Police Jennie developed her practice as a leading advocate in professional misconduct, data protection matters, article 2 inquests and Judicial review applications. She delivered training to various police services in the field of professional misconduct which she still continues to do.
Since joining chambers Jennie has developed her misconduct work to include appearing before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal for respondents and has gained a rightful place on the approved Counsel list for the General Medical Council. Jennie appears before the panel for the GMC on a regular basis and her inquisitive style of advocacy is extremely well suited for this area of work. Jennie has a wealth of experience in Inquest cases including jury inquests and she continues to appear in these hearings for a range of clients often alongside very senior counsel where she has developed a reputation as a skilled advocate in what is usually a highly sensitive arena.
Jennie has appeared in the Crown Court since 1996 and conducts jury trials both for the defence and for the prosecution. She has a specialised practice for conducting firearms appeals, applications for sexual offences prevention orders and all matters arising and associated applications concerning Proceeds of Crime. Jennie is a very robust advocate in the criminal courts and is meticulous in exploring issues that may arise in a case including admissibility of evidence, abuse of process, disclosure, hearsay and bad character.
Jennie is registered on the Bar Council’s Direct Access Scheme.
