In Star Wars the Revenge of the Sith, we travel back to the scene where Anakin, Palpatine and Obi-Wan Kenobi crashed through Coruscant's sky aboard the Inivisble Hand Ship (General Grievous' 'ship'). In the movies it made Anakin look like all he was doing was just pushing buttons and being a naturally gifted pilot...but the novelization takes us deeper. Anakin actually was using the force to land it by means of controlling it's parts, bypassing the Council's forbidden rules to not meddle with the force's will. Learn more about your ad choices.

Our guest in this week's episode is Zac Rogers, assistant professor of supply chain management at Colorado State University. We are hearing conflicting reports of what is going on in freight markets. Some carriers are struggling with high fuel costs and fewer shipments while others are enjoying record profits. Are we about to enter a collapse of freight markets as some analysts are predicting? Rogers shares his insights for the road ahead.Empty containers continue to sit at docks and warehouses and that unused container inventory certainly is not helping companies ship their products, particularly those for export. New efforts are being made to turn containers faster by offering incentives to companies to return their containers in a timely manner. Will this new initiative help relieve backlogs? Ocean carriers have had a banner year. They basically have chosen to cruise those lanes that have had the most profit. However, there are challenges ahead for the maritime industry. A new report shares the risks the market is facing. DC Velocity's sister publication CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly offers a new podcast series called Supply Chain in the Fast Lane.

May 12, 2022 — The Redwood Valley Municipal Advisory Council held a hybrid meeting last night on zoom and at the grange. The council agreed to form a committee that would educate community members about local water issues, and advocate for Redwood Valley's interests as water resources dwindle. The council decided to recommend that a cannabis grow not be allowed to increase its area of operations, due in part to a lack of information about where it would get its water. Lieutenant Jason Caudillo from the Sheriff's Department warned of a possible increase in criminal activity as the Redwood Trail progresses. Caudillo also said the future of the sheriff's sub-station at the Measure B-funded training center in the former Jehovah's Witness church on East Road appears to be uncertain, as the cost of repairing extensive water damage to an outbuilding mounts. Asked when the sheriff's sub-station would open, Caudillo said damage caused by a broken pipe would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair, so “I do not have an answer for you.” The Sheriff's Department paid one-third of the $389,000 purchase price of the property in 2019. Too much water is rare in Redwood Valley, where ag water has been shut off, and the community only has rights to surplus water from the much-reduced Lake Mendocino. The water district has rationed water use to 55 gallons per person per day. Council member Adam Gaska talked about why he's joining the committee on water issues, in a town that overlooks the lake. “Redwood Valley has zero right to that water,” he emphasized. “Twenty years ago, when Russian River really started signing up people for contracts, I remember Danny Thomas had written up this missive that had said, whisky's for drinking, water's for fighting. And I think I was like twenty at the time, and I'm like, it's gonna get serious.” Supervisor Glenn McGourty filled the council in about how much water is coming through the controversial Potter Valley Project, which is limping along with a missing transformer that curtails the amount of water that comes into the Russian River from the Eel through a diversion tunnel in Potter Valley. “You will see Lake Mendocino come up a little bit, primarily because of the water that's coming through the Potter Valley Project, even at the low rate that it's flowing in at the moment, it's still coming in, and will continue through most of the summer, but at a reduced rate,” he said. “Normally, we'd expect about fifteen to sixteen thousand acre feet to come through, and it'll be more like four to seven thousand.” The Municipal Advisory councils, or MACs, were formed in unincorporated parts of the county so that community members could have a venue to form cohesive approaches to planning concerns. They generally have the ear of their county supervisor, and they receive alerts about certain kinds of permits, so they can make comments to various governing bodies. They are not legislative bodies, themselves. Gaska thinks the MAC is the best local venue to educate community members about a variety of complex issues, including water policy. “Our business is communication. It is people having a voice,” he said. “RVMAC, we can't promise you anything. But we allow you the space and the time to be heard. Which is important, because then we also decide who else needs to hear that. Is it Glenn? Does Glenn need to hear that? Does Jason Caudillo from the sheriff need to hear that? And they're here. That's what our board does.” Water played a significant role in the council's lack of enthusiasm for a request from a cannabis permit holder to double the grow size to 10,000 square feet of outdoor cannabis. A map showing 14 hoop houses led to confusion about whether the request was to change the whole grow site to outdoor or grow some outdoors and some in the hoop houses. Council members Chris Boyd and Marybeth Kelly had additional reasons for opposing the permit's approval. “All of a sudden, we'll see huge increases in water trucks going up the road,” Boyd said. “And with all of these problems we're having with water, we don't need to add noise pollution and diesel pollution to the picture. So I'm not for this.” “Not to mention the state of the roads,” Kelly added. “Road E is one of the worst.” McGourty reported some of the things that the Board of Supervisors is considering as the county works on an ordinance to regulate water hauling. He favors requiring permits and business licenses for wells that are the source of water for water trucks, and giving Code Enforcement the responsibility of checking water truckers' documents. But, he pointed out, many people with some illegal cannabis also need water for legitimate domestic uses. “So how do you separate that out?” he asked. “Do you say no to health and public safety because they have a cannabis grow? So those are some of the things we have to work through.” Council member Sattie Clark said she believes that regulating water use, through policies based on rigorously gathering information, isn't all about busting illegal cannabis growers. “We all need to be looking at our water in a more holistic sense,” she opined. “Because it's kind of like, whoever takes it, gets it. And this conversation that we're having about hydrological studies for new wells, et cetera, is really just good management of our water resources…we need clarity about where this water is going and whether it's sustainable, whether it's healthy for our community as a whole.” McGourty encouraged the council to seek state money, saying that, while the county is broke, the state is flush with cash, and likely to spend some on small disadvantaged communities. Redwood Valley has gotten some relief for a major disaster. After the fire of 2017, PG&E awarded the MAC a $10,000 community planning grant. Boyd said the MAC decided to spend $5,000 of that grant on a new heating and cooling system for the grange, which became a hub in the wake of the fires. “Part of what we discovered in going through the fire and the emergencies is that the grange is a central locus for the community when we go through any emergency,” she declared.

Thanks for hanging out with me. Josh: Hey, Michael, I'm happy to be here. Michael: Awesome, so before we hit record here, we were chatting a little bit about your background. But for those people who weren't privy to that conversation, give us a quick and dirty who you are, where do you come from and what is it that you do in real estate today? Josh: Sure, happy to dive into that. So my name is Josh Ziegelbaum. I'm the director of Investor Relations for legacy group. We're an alternative asset manager focused on real assets in Latin America, our niche in the real estate space will be agriculture. Our portfolio company Green Coffee Company is the second largest coffee producer in Colombia. Today, we have the business on track to be the largest this year. So that's the niche in which we're in. It's certainly different than the typical space that most guys invest in. But we love the alternative investment space. I've been working in this industry for the last few years, but in financial services for more than the last decade. Prior to doing this, I was a private banker with Wells Fargo, in New Jersey, and then in Miami Beach and I currently sit in Fort Lauderdale and support our teams capital raising efforts and investor relations across our portfolio companies. Michael: Right on, so taking a step back, I mean, you mentioned is an alternative asset company or company focused on alternative asset, what's an alternative asset for someone that might not be familiar? Josh: Sure, it's anything that falls out of your scope of traditional investments. So traditional assets would be stocks, bonds, cash and equivalents. So typical investor portfolio, you may have heard the 60-40 approach that 60% bonds, or sorry, 60% stocks, 40% bonds, depends on the age, of course and those are what's traditional. So a financial advisor in the traditional space will say, all right, based on your age, and risk tolerance, you should have X amount stock in your portfolio, X amount of bonds and this much cash alternatives would be things like gold, real estate, cryptocurrencies, private equity, anything that falls out of the scope of traditional asset classes, and they're a great, I'm not saying anything bad about traditional investments, but alternatives are a great way to diversify portfolios and most of our investors, you know, they have stocks and bonds and cash in their portfolio, and we're looking to complement that. Michael: So Josh, why is it important, in your opinion, taking, you know, putting on your kind of financial hat for a minute, just from a personal standpoint, why is it important to have alternative assets? I mean, Why can't someone just go into the stock and bond and cash world? What attracted you? Josh: Yeah, I mean, coming from that industry of traditional investments, portfolio management, kind of selling ETFs, mutual funds, individual securities, that everything's somewhat cut and dry and there's similar offerings across the board at all banks, right and, I mean, you could, you know, no matter what you do in your portfolio, if you have all stocks, months, like April, everything's going down, right. So I mean, stocks perform well, in the long term, but it's important to have parts of your portfolio that are entirely uncorrelated, and that could weather a recession and that can weather inflation, right. So if you look at the inflation rate today, I mean, we're clocking over 8% a year right now. So even the historical return of a stock portfolio, it's, it's basically at or below inflation, you can go in yeah, you want to add assets to your portfolio that are uncorrelated and that can also you know, beat that. So I was attracted to the industry by the high returns, the interesting offerings, you know, early stage investing is sexy. It's something cool and suddenly you can't get in a bank. So, you know, I was I was attracted by the projects and social and environmental impact of the projects and really, you know, bringing something unique and interesting to a client base that they otherwise wouldn't have access to. Michael: Right on, and let's talk about you mentioned, uncorrelated for someone that might not be familiar with what correlation is, or how to be thinking about that, in terms of portfolio theory, making give us a quick rundown of how people should be thinking about that and really what correlation means. Josh: Correlation essentially means that assets move in tandem with one another. So there's certain assets called risk assets, stocks that usually move in tandem. So when there's, you've heard, everyone's probably heard of the S&P 500, or the Dow Jones Industrial Average. So this tracks the movements of a basket of securities. However, if you actually look granularly, at each one of the securities that makes up the Dow Jones or the S&P and you look at it during a trading day, they somewhat move together. So I mean, while we're recording this markets recovering post lunch, and looking, if you look at the stocks that make up an index, almost all of them are recovering at the same time. So that's correlation, so you want to have assets that move in opposite directions, and that aren't all tied to one another. Another term for this in the industry would be beta. So a beta of one means that if the S&P goes up 1%, the underlying security in reference also goes up 1%. So a younger growth investor looks for high beta names. But at the same time, when the market goes down, all the high beta names go down at the same time. So look at taking a step back, and kind of looking at a typical portfolio of stocks and bonds, people are now starting to add other assets there. So maybe that's real estate that they own personally, real estate that they own in a syndicated manner, whether that be apartment buildings, or something similar to that. cryptocurrency is one, I mean, we're hearing from a lot of professionals, two to 5% of your portfolio should be in crypto assets. So that's one that wasn't really taught when I when I was studying finance, but that's emerged, right. So we're seeing this emergence of alternative investments, and it's becoming more widely accepted that they should be a part of an investor's portfolio in order to mitigate risk. hedge against inflation and increased upside potential. Michael: Okay, right on. So and that's kind of where the legacy group comes in. That's an offering that you all have for investors and specifically, you said, in Latin America, ag land is that the main focus in Colombia, of course. Josh: That is right now. So we're an asset manager, we're focusing on early stage investment opportunities in operating businesses. So the Green Coffee Company, our flagship portfolio company, is an operating business in the agricultural space. So we founded the company about five years ago, we've gone through several funding rounds brought in over $25 million of equity capital primarily from the US and we're deploying that and buying up real assets farmland in Sagar Colombia, it's two to three hours outside of managing and we're consolidating infrastructure and building a world class operation. It's collateralized like it like a real estate play, but our investors get the upside of an operating business, our goal is to continue to acquire farmland and grow and establish ourselves to be in a position to exit through a sale or an IPO. For our investor base. Michael: What a cool kind of approach. Josh: Yeah, it's a bit of a hybrid. So it's like different than, you know, a traditional agricultural investment where, well, it's kind of hard to describe a traditional because it's hard to access. But if you bought a plot of land, you have access to the, you know, the cash flow that's produced on that particular plot of land. In our model, we, our investors own a slice of a large, very large plot of land, you know, over 5000 acres right now is what we control and but they have higher upside than just the cash flow. So we're building out mechanisms in which we can use coffee byproduct to create possibly a liquor or southern other alternative. We're building out processing facilities, roasting channels are on the horizon. So investors not only own the land of the underlying business, but they have the left side of the operations and we think that markets will reward this type of business in the years to come for the reasons I mentioned, and also because of the impact, you know, we're doing a lot of things to lift up the community in which we operate. something really special, and I can attest to the fact that it's something really unique that I haven't seen in any other offering. Michael: Interesting, so there's some wisdom out there that says don't invest in anything you don't understand, or you can't explain and so if someone doesn't have a clue about the club, be in coffee market or ag land in general, how should they get educated before making an investment like this? Josh: Yeah, so I would encourage you to follow us on social subscribe to our newsletter, it takes time to get comfortable with the asset manager that you're working with and we put out regular content that educates you on the coffee industry shows us videos and footage from the farms. In terms of our management team. You know, we have world class operators on the ground in Colombia. We've hired a 25 year veteran of the Colombian agriculture industry, Boris Molnar, to head up the Green Coffee Company has it CEO, we have our chief agronomist, as the former agronomist for Starbucks in Colombia, we have a really strong team and within our investment materials, there's more details on the management team and more of an explanation of the process and, and in the model. So in order to get comfortable, I would subscribe to us request our offering docs hop on a call with me happy to address questions individually, but definitely it takes a bit of time, of course. Michael: Okay, cool and you were talking about the return profile, potentially out beating are outpacing inflation and having a really attractive return compared to your traditional investments. What are you seeing in terms of returns to your investors over the last couple of years with Green Coffee Company? Josh: Sure, we're about to launch our Series C funding round, we're expecting to launch that and in July, and our expectation is to do that, at $1,000 a share up from 700 a share in our series B round and we're currently forecasting 8x net returns for our investors or in terms of an IRR or internal rate of return 53% annualized through a 2026 exit. The value that we've delivered to date is up rounds for all of our earlier investors. The seed round was at $500 a share and most recently, our B was at 700. So we've delivered significant value for our investors through capital appreciation. But from here, there's even more upside, like I said at the current are what we're expecting to be the next funding round. We're forecasting 8x net returns way higher than the inflation rate in the US and forecasting right now. Michael: That's awesome and so should investors expect a cash flow dividend or payment on any kind of regular frequency or not until the exit of the company are they IPO? Josh: Yeah, that's a great question, Michael. So we are modeling in dividends and cashflow on an annual basis. In our investor presentation it's forecasted to begin in 2023 for the 2022 operating year, and to continuously pay dividends each year of throughout operations until we exit. It's mostly a growth investment. So the bulk of the return is going to be realized when we sell the business or we IPO. But there's definitely a cashflow component that that we're modeling in here. Michael: Interesting, so in a syndication play, a lot of syndicators will give investors the opportunity at the exit to 1031 their money, keep their money with the operator, we're gonna go invest it into a new property, you're not going to pay any capital gains tax. How does it work with this because it's really a business more so than a real estate asset in the US specifically, because it's international, so how does that all work? Josh: That's a great question, Michael. So we've structured the investment to be in the US. So our investors are receiving common equity in Green Coffee Company holdings and it's a US based investment for all intents and purposes, the assets are primarily in Colombia, but the structure of the business is here in the States. Now, once we exit, whether that if it's through an IPO, we would classify that as a liquidity event, investors would be able to sell their shares without a lockup period. But you're not forced to sell in the event of an IPO. Similar, like if someone comparatively if we're exiting a commercial real estate deal, you have to take your money out and like if they're selling or the refinancing, they're gonna give you your money out. But if we go public, there's optionality there, you could sell a portion you could sell all you could sell none, it's actually the investor could not realize any capital gains if they wanted to. Now, there's no ability to 1031 stocks, right. So even though there's underlying real estate, and it's a US based investment, there's no ability to do a 1031 exchange with this type of product. However, investors can invest in a tax deferred manner. We have people who invest in retirement accounts, traditional IRAs or Roth IRAs, so that they could essentially accomplish what you're saying, but within a retirement account, that's a way in which people could do it. I didn't mention this, but it's a it's open for accredited investors only. So it's a 506 C offering minimum investments 100,000 so most of our investors are high net worth or ultra are high net worth and it's a means in which to complement their current portfolio, but um, no ability on the 1031. But there's there are other tax advantages through an IRA that can be achieved. Michael: Okay, interesting. Have you ever looked into qualified opportunity zones? Josh: We have, so I have experience in that through another portfolio company of ours, we were developing opportunity's own projects in in Puerto Rico, which is a US territory. Now, the business as it relates to coffee, the coffee business, it's in the US, but the assets, the farmland, it's all in Colombia. So there's no the opportunity's own legislation is specific to the US and its territories. So that we unfortunately, we don't have ability to use utilize the opportunity's own legislation for this project. Michael: But I'm wondering about actually going the other way with it. So if it's considered a stock and someone sells shares of their stock and has a capital gain, if they invest those gains into a fund, I think that there might be opportunity there as well. Josh: That's right on the back end, if an investor I mean, assuming that the opportunity zone legislation remains intact, at the exit, right. When an investor gets a distribution, they could, like you said, theoretically identify and opportunities on investment to roll their capital gain into to relieve to alleviate some of the tax burden. Michael: Yeah, but definitely talk to a tax professional before doing any of this stuff, because we're not tax advisers. It's really interesting. So I'm curious, Josh, I think a lot of investors, especially in the states understand some of the risks and the downside associated with real estate investing, specifically with regard to single family homes. That's why they have insurance, that sort of thing. What kind of risks and downsides are you seeing as potentials that people should be aware of in the coffee industry down in Colombia? Josh: Yeah, I think the main one is weather. So you know, in agriculture, whether it's Columbia us, I mean, weather is something that needs to be mitigated. It's just the main risk when it comes to agriculture. Last year, the harvest in Colombia, it was lighter than expected across the board. There was also some adverse weather patterns in Brazil and other parts of the world. This pushed up coffee commodity prices dramatically, however, it lowered production of the farmland, so a bit of a double edged sword, we were able to benefit from the increase in prices. But there is some uncertainty as it relates to weather and we have to mitigate it. We use methods in which to monitor soil weather patterns and we have some world class technology on the farms in order to monitor and mitigate on the weather side and be proactive. But I would say that's a risk that investors need to be aware of, in the end. Michael: It was great to know and you mentioned social and environmental impacts. Can you talk to that a little bit? Josh: Sure, on the social side, it's my favorite one. So we're the largest start there. We're the largest employer in Sagar. It's a town in which we operate. We have great relationship with the mayor and the local officials there. We recently inaugurated a processing facility at the end of last year, we had the America mount the chief of police, the head of the Council of American enterprises doing business in the country and what we're doing in the community is something really special, we're providing fair and equal employment with above average wages, paid time off, fringe and benefits in an industry that does not have benefits, and that pays its employees with cash. So we're taking an industry that's done in this informal manner, and we're formalizing it and we're more really lifting up the community and you could see it when you're there. There's so much passion behind the work that's done by the employees. It's something it's really special to me, and we're employing several 100 people and growing and, yeah, we have an entire presentation on social and environmental impact. On the environmental side of some things that we're doing, we're planting the coffee with through a system called an Ella pod. It allows us to plant biodegradable pods for the new trees instead of coffee, but instead of plastic bags, so we're removing tons and tons of waste from the environment with our planting methods. On fertilizers, we're spraying the trees at the base. So we're reducing the amount of fertilizer that's used and we're also preventing harm to the surrounding area. We do reforestation and a lot of different things and we're working on a solar project. Now that's in the works. So a lot of things on the environmental side as well, I would say. Michael: Very, very cool. So Josh, this has been super fun, man. Where can people learn more about you and learn more about Green Coffee Company get in touch with folks at Legacy group? How, you know, how should they go about doing that? Josh: Yeah, definitely go to our website. That's legacy/group.co.

One of Russia's highest-ranking government officials today issued a stark warning to the United States of America and its NATO allies. Dmitry Medvedev was president of Russia from 2008 to 2012. He also served as prime minister and is now deputy chairman of Russia's national security council. He said military weapons and ammo flowing into Ukraine from the USA and European allies risks triggering a direct nuclear war between the Russian Federation and NATO allies. I've lost count of how many nuclear war warnings have been issued by Russian officials since early March, but few Americans appear to be taking them seriously. Rick Wiles, Doc Burkhart.

In April 2022, at the invitation of the leadership of The American Law Institute, a group whose members span a range of legal and political views, came together to consider possible Electoral Count Act (ECA) reforms. Despite holding diverse legal, political, and ideological commitments, the group is united by the belief that Congress should reform the ECA before the 2024 presidential election. The group has agreed on several general principles that should guide ECA reform, as well as specific proposals as to what ECA reform should seek to accomplish. Because of the need for quick action, this project has not gone through the typical ALI bicameral process, which requires approval by both our Council and membership, and therefore cannot be considered the official work of the Institute. In this episode of Reasonably Speaking, David F. Levi is joined by the project's co-chairs, Bob Bauer and Jack Goldsmith, who explain the purpose of the project and walk through the General and Specific Principles.This podcast episode is jointly produced by the ALI and the Bolch Judicial Institute at Duke Law School.

Interdependence is the idea that the wellbeing of our world and for our physical and emotional selves depends on those around us, yet when we find ourselves up against a challenge bigger than ourselves, our sense of interdependence becomes stronger. When we move that scale even larger (i.e. a global climate crisis), interdependence becomes paramount. Climate change not only affects our everyday lives, but affects cultural history and cultural artifacts such as books and architectural styles, as well as more ephemeral practices like theater, song and language. How well we are able to face these challenges has to do with how we tell stories. How well we tell stories depends on what we choose to protect, preserve, and make prosper in our cultures. If you've used the Internet in the last 20 years, or 20 minutes, you know that there isn't a lack of information or stories online, but how much of our and others' cultural heritage exists digitally, how accessible is it, and who is able to contribute?These are questions that Charles Henry engages with in this episode.

Two economists take readers on a tour of the economics of legal and illegal weed, showing where cannabis regulation has gone wrong and how it could do better. Cannabis "legalization" hasn't lived up to the hype. Across North America, investors are reeling, tax collections are below projections, and people are pointing fingers. On the business side, companies have shut down, farms have failed, workers have lost their jobs, and consumers face high prices. Why has legal weed failed to deliver on many of its promises? Can Legal Weed Win? takes on the euphoric claims with straight dope and a full dose of economic reality. This book delivers the unadulterated facts about the new legal segment of one of the world's oldest industries. In witty, accessible prose, economists Robin Goldstein and Daniel Sumner take readers on a whirlwind tour of the economic past, present, and future of legal and illegal weed. Drawing upon reams of data and their own experience working with California cannabis regulators since 2016, Goldstein and Sumner explain why many cannabis businesses and some aspects of legalization fail to measure up, while others occasionally get it right. Their stories stretch from before America's first medical weed dispensaries opened in 1996 through the short-term boom in legal consumption that happened during COVID-19 lockdowns. Can Legal Weed Win? is packed with unexpected insights about how cannabis markets can thrive, how regulators get the laws right or wrong, and what might happen to legal and illegal markets going forward. Robin Goldstein is an economist and author of The Wine Trials, the controversial exposé of wine snobbery that became the world's best-selling guide to cheap wine. He is Director of the Cannabis Economics Group in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Davis.

This is Part II of our discussion. Gaslit Nation is excited to welcome Anne Nelson, an expert on American right-wing aspiring autocrats who has been warning about the conditions that led to our present national crisis for our entire adult lives! Yes, you should have listened to Anne Nelson's warnings earlier but it's never too late to start. In this crash course in America's secret history, Nelson describes a radical right-wing takeover that was decades in the making. She explains the nefarious financial and political alliances that arose during the Reagan administration and still guide the US today, the rise of the religious right over the past five decades, “shadow network” think tanks like the Council for National Policy, and the infusion of dark money in politics. She also describes the ineffective response of the Democratic Party to Republican extremists, the January 6 attack on America, and what steps we can take to preserve our democracy.
How can concepts like “teacher identity” and “learning leader” transform how educators show up in the classroom? What is the difference between directive and generative scaffolding, and how can one be significantly more constructive for ELs? What roles can deep culture, identity, and instructional power play in crafting more equitable teaching styles? We discuss these questions and much more with Tanji Reed Marshall, who was highly recommended by our friend Jeff Zwiers form Stanford Graduate School of Education. Tanji Reed Marshall, Ph.D., is the director of p-12 practice, leading Ed Trust's Equity in Motion assignment analysis work.

What were the 4 things that James and the Council of Jerusalem asked Gentile converts to abstain from and why?
It has become beyond apparent that a “tough on crime” approach proves more detrimental than beneficial to society. To further explore this, I am joined by high-profile criminal barrister, Queen's Council, and author of “Justice on Trial”, Chris Daw QC, who offers his thoughts on what measures need to be taken to reform a tragically devolved justice system. Bio: Chris Daw QC was called to the Bar in 1993 and was appointed Queen's Counsel in 2013. Before taking silk, Chris built his reputation in the criminal courts, acting in high profile trials and appeals, from serious organised crime to commercial fraud. As a QC, whilst maintaining a substantial criminal and serious fraud practice, Chris acts in a broader range of matters, including business, regulatory and professional discipline instructions. Chris Daw QC has a stellar practise spanning the fields of criminal law, serious fraud, business regulation, and professional discipline. Ranked as a Leading Silk in The Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners, Chris appears in many high profile cases. He also advises companies and leading individuals in the worlds of sport, entertainment, and business. First and foremost, however, he is known for his winning strategies and exceptional client care, no matter who he represents. Chris Daw QC acts only for private and insured clients, all of whom receive the time and attention to detail they demand. His client base consists of private individuals, corporations, regulated professionals, and senior police officers. Although Chris has acted for international footballers, world champion boxers, television producers, multi-national corporations, and Chief Constables, most of his clients are not in the public eye and have no desire for the limelight. Many of those who instruct Chris are hard-working people, who find themselves, or a loved one, accused of a crime, which threatens to ruin their life. They want to do everything legally possible to protect themselves from imprisonment, damage to reputation, and financial ruin.
