Rupert has developed a successful commercial, costs, chancery and property practice since becoming a tenant in April 2014. He is regularly instructed in FTT Property Chamber, County Court, SCCO and High Court hearings in a variety of matters ranging from mortgage repossessions to Solicitors Act assessments. Rupert is a talented advocate who is equally at home arguing a precise point of statutory construction as he is acting as one of a number of junior counsel in major litigation.
He has a varied client base and prides himself on giving commercially focused advice backed up by a tenacious manner in court. He is approachable and hard-working.
Rupert is also an ADR Accredited Mediator and a member of a specialist costs mediation panel.
He was appointed Junior Counsel to the Crown (Attorney General’s C Panel) in 2017.
