Following his employment as a state prosecutor, throughout his involvement in these areas, including the writing of articles and the provision of training to different professional groups, Mr Gebbie has at all times been a  full-time practising criminal lawyer. He is fluent in Swedish and French. For further details see Black Chambers website.
