I was called to the Bar in 2010 by the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn. I commenced pupillage the same year and became a tenant at Tanfield Chambers in 2011.
My primary areas of practice are commercial and property litigation and arbitration. I have a profile on Legal 500.
I have delivered talks and seminars on a range of legal topics. These include recent seminars on receivership, forfeiture, the enforcement of judgments, and costs. If you would like more information on how I can deliver a seminar or presentation for your business or organisation, please contact me directly.
I am a member of the Bar Council of England and Wales and my conduct as a barrister is regulated by the Bar Standards Board. I hold full professional indemnity insurance with Bar Mutual and am VAT-registered. I am registered as a data controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office. All of the work that I carry out incorporates the Bar Council’s Standard Contractual Terms unless expressly agreed otherwise.
I was awarded an undergraduate degree in History (First Class Honours) by Robinson College, University of Cambridge, in July 2006, and the Graduate Diploma in Law (graded ‘Distinction’, City Law School) in July 2009. I completed the Bar Vocational Course (graded ‘Outstanding’, BPP Law School) in July 2010, before starting pupillage later that year.
I have been awarded the Hardwicke Entrance Scholarship, Lord Haldane Scholarship, Lord Denning Scholarship, Levitt Scholarship, and Buchanan Prize by the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn (2008-2010). I won the 3 Verulam Buildings Prize for achieving first place on the Graduate Diploma in Law (2009) and I am a Titular Scholar of Robinson College, Cambridge (2006).
Background and interests
Before training as a barrister, I was a full-time teacher at a secondary school in Chingford, east London. Outside work, I enjoy film, classic cars, and travelling.
