Barrister

Having worked for nearly eight years as a solicitor in private practice before being called to the bar in 2005, Charles understands the pressures and constraints on those who instruct him and the commercial realities of litigation. He appreciates that sometimes it helps to be able to talk things through, and is happy to discuss cases informally, often before receiving formal instructions.

He joined Queen Square in November 2014, and advises and represents individuals and businesses of all sizes on a broad range of issues, including claims in tort, contractual disputes and insolvency. In appropriate cases he is able to take instructions direct from businesses and individuals. Recent cases include:

  • Advising insurers in relation to a subrogated claim following house fire.
  • Advising a firm of solicitors in relation to the enforceability of an ATE insurance policy and associated contract.
  • Advising in relation to enforceability of oral contract for hire of plant and equipment.
  • Representing lenders facing a series of challenges to the enforceability of agreements under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and associated legislation.
  • Representing a claimant seeking judgment against an individual on the basis he allowed himself to be held out as a partner.
  • Defending a malicious bankruptcy petition.

    It was not that long ago that the Ministry of Justice told us it would be ditching its copies of old employment tribunal judgments.  From the Autumn 2016, it seems that judgments are going to be available online for all to see.  Presumably the service will be similar to that offered by the Employment Appeal … Continue reading Open Justice or a Gossip’s Charter?
