Brian Altman KC is a highly successful appellate barrister who has delivered remarkable results in appeal courts up to the Supreme Court. Senior decision makers trust his razor-sharp professionalism and extensive legal experience as a top leading barrister.
In March 2021, Brian, instructed by Peters & Peters and leading two other silks and three junior counsel, appeared on behalf of Post Office Ltd in the Court of Appeal Criminal Division in relation to 42 cases referred by the Criminal Cases Review Commission in what was the largest conjoined appeal ever heard by the Court of Appeal Criminal Division (R v Hamilton & Others  EWCA Crim 577).

Other appeal hearings include the case of Robert Ekaireb, an historic missing body murder case, where the silk acting for the appellant was said to have been incompetent, while the landmark Supreme Court judgment in the case of Armel Gnango overturned the decision of the five-judge Court of Appeal on a novel and unique issue of joint enterprise and transferred malice in murder.
