Sir Geoffrey Nice QC has had an extensive career including some 36 years of general common law work in the UK first as a junior and culminating as Queen’s Counsel in 1990. He was called to the Bar in 1971 and practiced for 30 years at Farrar’s Building, Temple, thereafter - and for a time as head of chambers - at what is now Temple Garden Chambers.
In 1998 Sir Geoffrey was recruited to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia – the ICTY. He prosecuted the ICTY’s then biggest case of a politician - Dario Kordic - and the fist genocide case at the Tribunal to reach a conclusion - the case of Goran Jelisic. In 2001, after a short spell back in London, he returned to The Hague and led the prosecution of Slobodan Milosevic for over four years until Milosevic’s death, when sir Geoffrey returned again to the UK to develop a practice representing foreign governments and other interested parties , usually connected to the defence of individuals charged at the International criminal Court. He also represents many other interests on a pro bono basis
Sir Geoffrey is currently a Patron of the University of Kent’s “Kent Law Campaign” and holds an Honorary degree from the university.
