Chris joined Central Chambers in 2021, commencing a family law pupillage under the supervision of Nazmun Ismail and is currently practising in his second six. He has experience of matters in both the public and private arenas, with an emphasis on Children and Deprivation of Liberty proceedings.
Chris started his journey in law coming from a successful self-employed career. He studied for a MA at the University of Law before being granted a scholarship from Middle Temple. Thereafter, he obtained a Distinction in his LLM and a Very Competent on the Bar Course.
Before studying law, Chris had a varied and successful journey, beginning in the games industry as a QA Analyst, before moving to British Airways and eventually establishing his own business in photography and graphic design. He then began to volunteer at a Greater Manchester Law Centre where he developed the skills and knowledge to advocate in social security tribunals – achieving a 100% success rate in his cases.
Whilst studying in Manchester and Leeds, Chris used his skills in client management and case analysis to assist the Legal Advice Clinic on employment and social security matters, alongside volunteering for the National Centre for Domestic Violence.
Post-qualification, Chris worked in commercial litigation and personal injury for a large Legal 500 – Tier 1 firm as an advocate, honing his skills on a range of civil hearings from trials and interlocutory matters to quantum hearings and applications.
