Pearse has developed a busy and varied practice accepting instructions across all of Chambers’ core work areas with particular emphasis on insolvency work and property disputes. He gains praise for the clarity and practicality of his work; he is equally adept at providing a written solution to a complex matter as responding on his feet to changing circumstances in court. He appears regularly in both the County Court & High Court and has experience of handling all stages of a dispute.
The breadth of Pearse’s practice is evident from the work he has recently undertaken including successfully getting a statutory demand set aside, acting for Liquidators on a disputed winding-up petition which involved subrogation and cross-jurisdictional questions and advising in relation to varying a restrictive covenant.
Before studying law, Pearse read Modern History at the University of St Andrews and graduated with First Class Honours. He is also a Kennedy Scholar of Lincoln’s Inn.
