Year of Call: 2016
Gregor joined Chambers in October 2017 and is developing a busy practice across Chambers’ areas of expertise. He regularly appears in the High Court, where he is instructed in his own right on interlocutory matters, and in the County Court. Gregor has a particular interest in contentious trusts and probate work (including offshore), commercial litigation, company and civil fraud.
Gregor has recently returned to Chambers from a seven-month secondment in the Contentious Trusts and Succession group at Withers LLP, during which he worked on a number of Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 claims involving dynastic and high net worth estates as well as advising offshore trustees and charities on a range of contentious and non-contentious matters.
Gregor completed his pupillage in 2017 and his pupil supervisors were Jennifer Haywood, Constance McDonnell, Matthew Morrison and James Weale. During pupillage Gregor worked on cases covering the full spectrum of Chambers' practice. Prior to coming to the Bar, Gregor completed his BA and BCL at Merton College, University of Oxford and also holds a Certificat Supérieur de Droit Français et Européen from the Université Panthéon-Assas, Paris II. He was also a Lecturer in Constitutional, EU and Administrative Law at St Hugh's College, University of Oxford and was a research assistant to Professor Jeremias Prassl on his book The Concept of the Employer.
