Practice Overview

Max is an experienced commercial lawyer practising across the entire spectrum of commercial and chancery work.

His highlights since transferring to the Bar include acting for the Claimant in the Ridley v Dubai Islamic Bank litigation (a claim for a High Court injunction to enforce a US $501 million restructuring agreement) (with Matthew Morrison) and for the defendant executors and will trustees of the late renowned architect, Dame Zaha Hadid, in Schumacher v Clarke [2020] EWHC 3358 (Ch) (led by Elspeth Talbot Rice QC and James Brightwell).

Before coming to the Bar, Max qualified as a solicitor at a leading private client litigation firm. In 2018-19, he was Judicial Assistant to Lord Wilson at the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, working on landmark cases in commercial, employment and administrative law. He was previously a Senior Researcher at the Law Commission of England and Wales, leading a project for the Commercial and Common Law Team on unfair contractual terms in residential leases.

Max completed pupillage in September 2020. His supervisors were Matthew Morrison, Dan McCourt Fritz, Gareth Tilley, and Jonathan Fowles. During pupillage, he worked especially on matters of company law and insolvency, civil fraud, and commercial litigation at the confluence of business and human rights.

Max read Classics at Oxford, converted to law, and then gained an LLM in Commercial Law from Cambridge, specialising in corporate governance and corporate finance law.
