Qualified as a Barrister in England and Wales (2008) and in Ireland (2019)
I have a particular interest in data protection and information privacy law (GDPR) and have advised individual and corporate clients in relation to compliance and potential litigation following a breach. I teach a professional training course on GDPR compliance (to lawyers and IT professionals) and lecture on aspects of data protection law and practice.
In England and Wales I also accept instructions on property, landlord and tenant, contract, civil common law and insolvency matters.
In England and Wales I can be instructed through my clerks at 10 King's Bench Walk chambers in London where I am a door tenant. I can also consider instructions under the Bar Public Access Scheme which allows me to accept instructions from an individual or a company without a solicitor being instructed. This can save money but is not always suitable depending upon the matter.
I am regulated by the Bar Standards Board (BSB) in relation to my practice in England and Wales and by the Legal Services Regulation Authority (LSRA) in relation to my practice in Ireland.
In Ireland I can be instructed via any Irish Solicitor's firm which is authorised to practise in the State. Under certain limited circumstances I can be instructed directly by organisations qualified under the Bar Direct Professional Access scheme or by a foreign lawyer.
I can accept instructions via my chambers for matters related to the law of England and Wales or via any Solicitor authorised to practise in Ireland in relation to Irish law matters. I cannot advise members of the public directly and I will not engage in correspondence outside of proper instructions. This is to protect you as much as me because my professional indemnity insurance does not cover the giving of ad-hoc advice otherwise than when properly instructed.
