Having joined Chambers as a tenant in 2018, Samuel has developed a busy and growing practice covering all of Chambers’ practice areas.
He has particular expertise in civil matters and is regularly instructed by solicitors and insurers on fast track and multi-track cases. His recent civil experience includes property and land issues, injunctive relief, personal injury claims and contract disputes. Samuel also has a particular interest in costs and has appeared before the SCCO as well as representing clients at cost management hearings.
Samuel has a busy paperwork practice and is regularly instructed to advise on civil and family matters or draft pleadings. When a matter is urgent, he is happy to work to tight timescales.
Samuel also represents clients in the family court and has experience dealing with Children Act and Financial Remedy proceedings.
He is able to provide advice at all stages of a case, from pre-action through to trial, the assessment of costs and enforcement.
Samuel is happy to accept instructions on a CFA basis where appropriate and is happy to travel when required.
Before coming to the bar, Samuel gained experience in a wide-ranging role at a leading litigation firm in London where he worked on a number of complex and high-value commercial cases.
Whilst studying, he was involved in pro bono work for the University of Kent’s Kent Law Clinic and City Law School’s Company Insolvency Scheme.
Sam has helped set-up and run two companies in the past. Although he now focuses on his legal career, he believes his personal experience helps him to relate to and understand the concerns of the business owners he works with on commercial and contract matters.
