Barristers Privacy Notice

Christopher holds a busy family practice covering all aspects of children’s public law care proceedings. He represents parents, other relatives, children and local authorities at all stages of proceedings, including fact-finding and final welfare hearings.

His practice and experience includes the whole spectrum of care work, including cases involving allegations of domestic abuse, sexual abuse, FII and child non-accidental injury.

He regularly provides lectures and seminars on developments in children’s law.

Prior to joining Chambers, Christopher gained experience in a variety of roles both at home and abroad. He spent two years at a US law firm working in their busy litigation department. During his time at the firm he worked on two international human rights cases under Managing Partner, Lord Goldsmith QC.

He went on to spend six months working in Rwanda alongside a team of humanitarian lawyers. This involved a leading role on their Juvenile Prisoners’ Project and regularly travelling the country to teach on Child Rights under the UNCRC. He played an active part in Rwandese Ministry of Justice roundtables, supporting the development of their legal aid policy.

Christopher then lived and worked for a year in Paris, for a law firm specialising in the field of international bribery and corruption compliance. Just before commencing pupillage, as Middle Temple’s Anglo Israel Scholar, he stayed in Tel Aviv where he worked in a law firm and shadowed the work of judges in the civil and criminal courts.
