Thom instructed with Alun Jones QC on David Haigh costs appeal

Alun Jones QC and Thom Dyke have been instructed by Kaim Todner to judicially review a £230,000 costs order made against David Haigh, the former managing director of Leeds United Football Club.  The order was made in October 2015 following Mr Haigh's application to bring a private prosecution.  He alleged his former employers two GFH Capital executives, and their lawyer, former Gibson Dunn & Crutcher partner Peter Gray, engaged in “human trafficking” to lure him to Dubai where he is currently in prison.
