Year of Call: 2017
Jamie joined Chambers in October 2018 following the completion of pupillage and is developing a practice which spans Chambers' core areas of expertise. Following the completion of pupillage, Jamie spent six months on secondment in the Dispute Resolution team at Kingsley Napley LLP, during which he focused on contentious trust and probate matters, as well as working on a number of high-value commercial and civil fraud cases. Since returning to Chambers, he has appeared both led and unled in a number of interlocutory applications in the High Court and is instructed as counsel in proceedings in the High Court and County Court.
Jamie's pupil supervisors were James Brightwell, Matthew Morrison, Gareth Tilley, and James Weale. During pupillage Jamie was exposed to a broad range of Commercial and Chancery matters, including the four day hearing in the Privy Council of Investec v Glenalla and a week-long High Court trial in BES v Scrivener and Mooney.
Jamie completed the GDL (distinction) and BPTC (outstanding) at City University. Prior to coming to the Bar, Jamie gained a first class degree in Classics from Brasenose College, Oxford and spent three years working for the strategy consultancy firm, Oliver Wyman. His work at Oliver Wyman was predominantly focused on the financial services sector and during his time there, he completed the Chartered Financial Analyst exams. This experience is particularly useful in understanding and analysing the issues in high-value commercial disputes.
