Michael joined Chambers in October 2019 after successfully completing pupillage. He accepts instructions across all areas of Chambers’ work, and particularly in the fields of public, commercial, employment, education and information law.
Michael has appeared in the Employment Tribunal, Court of Protection and First-Tier Tribunal (Social Entitlements Chamber). He has also advised in his own right in relation to judicial review proceedings in the High Court and the First-Tier Tribunal (Information Rights). He has assisted members of Chambers on contentious and advisory work in a wide variety of cases across Chambers’ specialisms.
Before coming to the Bar, Michael was a trainee for six months in Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer’s international arbitration team in Paris, assisting mostly on English-law commercial arbitrations and investor-state disputes. He also worked on death-penalty appeals in New Orleans, and spent a year in the Legal Office of the United Nations World Food Programme in Rome, working on contractual, constitutional and international-law matters.
