Paris Theodorou

Paris Theodorou | Solicitor 020 7874 8594

I am originally from the West Midlands, growing up in and around Birmingham before moving to London in 2014 to further my career as a criminal defence solicitor.

After obtaining my LLB Law degree and later graduating from the College of Law with a BVC, I was called to the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple. Soon after, I transferred to become a solicitor, fulfilling my lifelong ambition to represent marginalised members of society as an ambassador for justice.

I have ten years’ experience within the Criminal Justice System, ranging from acting as a panel member on the Youth Offenders Board, to working on high profile cases in the Crown Court.

During this time, I have gained a vast array of practical skills that have enabled me to become an exceptional strategist with a leading reputation among colleagues and clients.

I have also undergone extensive Advocacy training including LAMDA and RADA courses, mooting and debating. This experience has given me the requisite skills to be able to handle any courtroom situation, which my track record of successful cases will attest to.

My case history includes match fixing cases, fraud, cybercrime, insider dealing and robbery, among many others.

I take pride in my adaptability, non-judgemental approach and natural intuition with all my cases, which often cover some of the most complex areas of crime.

Where others only see problems, I find solutions.

Notable cases

  • R v K and others – Client alleged to have committed the offences of kidnap and robbery. The case was complex due to the use of cell site analysis and covert surveillance operations. The Defendant was found not guilty.
  • R v G and others – Client alleged to have conspired to supply heroin after the substance was found in the rear of a vehicle he had been driving. The Defendant was found not guilty.
  • R v S and others – Acted for the main Defendant in the high profile match fixing trial, the biggest in the UK for many years.. Originally charged with 5 offences but later found guilty of only one, all other charges were dropped.

Client comments

  • “An experienced professional making a difference in society.”
  • “Paris proved himself to be very professional and the type of Solicitor to go the extra mile.”
  • “Paris was very easy to talk to and made things very clear in a professional manner. I would call upon his services again.”
