Christian is developing a busy practice across a number of Chambers’ Civil law areas and appears in the Magistrates’ Court, the County Court and the High Court. He has also appeared in the First Tier and Upper Tribunal for property and the First Tier Tax Tribunal.
Before commencing pupillage, he was legal counsel at a boutique property management firm of Chartered Surveyors in central London. As a result, Christian is experienced in a range of property matters far beyond his year of call, including commercial and residential landlord and tenant disputes, super-prime commercial rent review arbitrations and service charge disputes.
Christian has also previously been a dairy farmer and soldier. He has served on a number of dairy industry bodies at board level and is a past Chair of the Dairy Council. He retains a special interest in agricultural matters and has extensive business experience which helps him relate well to commercial clients from all sectors.
He has always been interested in the Law, and worked at a magistrates’ court whilst at school, before serving in the armed forces. When the opportunity arose to study for his law degree and bar exams whilst working, he took it, relishing the chance to pursue his interest. He initially had a particularly academic interest in law, focussing on historic case law as a reflection of changes in society. This interest now serves him well in his practice, which he sees largely as a problem-solving challenge.
