"Mr Moore is a very good Solicitor and pulls no punches"

Described by the Legal 500 as a 'leading light' and a 'leading lawyer', Damien has been a Partner at Fosters since 2011. He is currently the Deputy Head of the Crime and Business Defence Team and has represented clients in a range of proceedings including murder, serious sexual assaults and complex high value fraud as well as proceedings commenced by private agencies such as the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency, Trading Standards and the Maritime & Coastguard Agency.

A Solicitor-Advocate Damien regularly represents his clients appearing in the Crown Courts. He is one of a very small number of Advocates to hold a Higher Courts dual qualification in civil proceedings as well.

Having practised in law for 25 years, Damien has acquired a loyal client base who regularly instruct him. He has developed a niche for representing clients in the media spotlight. In 2018, he acted in the Morrison's murder Trial, a high-profile case, which saw his client acquitted of murder. Damien has provided legal commentary and opinion on television and BBC radio on a variety of topics, including drug conspiracies, the Milly Dowler murder trial and appeal work.

Damien has expanded his practice to encompass corporate criminal defence work. He is frequently retained by the Royal College of Nursing to defend nurses accused of criminal offences. In recent times Damien has secured the acquittals of senior nurses accused of gagging, deliberate beating and false imprisonment. He has also acted, twice over, for an international drinks manufacturer accused of a multitude of offences relating to product mislabelling. In both cases Damien's meticulous work in this difficult area of law ensured the company avoided a professionally damaging and costly prosecution.

In December 2014, Damien was appointed to the judiciary and sits as a Chair of the Police Appeals Disciplinary Tribunal. This important work undertaken on behalf of the Home Office reflects Damien's impressive ability in regulatory-based proceedings and requires him to objectively adjudicate upon all forms of police misconduct and poor performance. Damien has sat as a Tribunal Chair in some significant cases including ruling for the first time on the relationship between an off-duty police officer and his claim to a right of privacy under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Damien also works closely with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives who in 2017 commissioned him as a mentor Judge for their candidates interested in applying for judicial posts.

Damien combines his part-time judicial work with his full-time criminal defence work in Norfolk and Suffolk and heading up Fosters branch office in Lowestoft. In 2020, Damien oversaw the relocation of the branch office to its new premises on Regent Road.
