About Me and my Experience as a Clerk

I began my career as a clerk in 1996 at The Chambers of Michael Boardman, 6 Gray's In Square under Russel Kinsley. They were a crime set with a good reputation. Some of those members are now QC's, even a pupil which really shows my age. 


After a year or so I was offered at position at 33 Bedford Chambers which undertook Crime, Civil and Family which gave me more experience in different areas of law. Fast forward to 2008 after a few clerks and fees clerks positions I gained my first Senior Clerk role at 4 Kings Bench Walk which after 4 years I went on to head the clerking team at 12 Old Square.

My main interest outside work is football. I am a Charlton Athletic season ticket holder and play 5 a side football. In the summer you will find me playing Sunday friendly cricket in Kent and mountain biking.

If you have any questions on instructing counsel then please give me a call. I'm also available to talk about football and cricket, whichever you prefer.
