Christopher holds a busy family practice in both public law care proceedings and private law child arrangements disputes. He represents parents, other relatives, Children’s Guardians and the local authority at all stages of care proceedings. He is also regularly instructed in private children’s law. His experience includes handling cases requiring a fact finding, representing parents who have suffered domestic abuse and cases involving allegations of non-accidental injury.
Alongside his family practice, Christopher prosecutes and defends in the criminal courts.
Prior to joining Chambers, Christopher gained experience in a variety of roles both at home and abroad. He spent two years at a US law firm working in their busy litigation department. During his time at the firm he worked on two international human rights cases under Managing Partner, Lord Goldsmith QC.
He went on to spend six months working in Rwanda alongside a team of humanitarian lawyers. This involved a leading role on their Juvenile Prisoners’ Project and regularly travelling the country to teach on Child Rights under the UNCRC. He played an active part in Rwandese Ministry of Justice roundtables, supporting the development of their legal aid policy.
Christopher then lived and worked for a year in Paris, for a law firm specialising in the field of international bribery and corruption compliance. Just before commencing pupillage, as Middle Temple’s Anglo Israel Scholar, he stayed in Tel Aviv where he worked in a law firm and shadowed the work of judges in the civil and criminal courts.
