It was revolutionary and utilised the best of traditional chambers whilst harnessing online tools and services. It was the first organisation working through online portals and websites. Specialising exclusively in direct access instructions in the areas of licensing and medical regulation he transformed that into Kings View Chambers in 2014. He remains Joint Head of Chambers. His new work involves defence barrister websites for taxi and licensing as well as specialist representation in all medical fields.

“I am very proud to have been selected on to the 2020 LexisNexis Legal Awards judging panel.  It is a privilege to have been asked to take part in such a prestigious event promoting excellence and innovation across the legal sector.
