Matthew joined Chambers in October 2023 on successful completion of his pupillage.
Throughout his second six, Matthew has developed a broad commercial chancery practice which encompasses corporate and personal insolvency matters, real property issues, as well as commercial and residential landlord and tenant disputes. In addition, he is well-equipped to handle company and partnership disputes, commercial matters and wills, trusts, and probate.
Matthew is building a busy Court practice, being regularly instructed to attend Court, often against Counsel several years his senior. He has trial experience, and as such is comfortable with witness-handling, as well as in submissions. Matthew also welcomes instructions on written matters, with experience drafting pleadings and applications in a wide range of practice areas.
Prior to pupillage, Matthew spent five years working in defence and security for the UK Government. He studied Law at the University of Oxford and Université Panthéon-Assas in Paris, and studied the Bar Course at Northumbria University, achieving the highest mark in his cohort.
