Practice Overview

Alfred read History at Churchill College Cambridge from where he graduated with a First Class Degree.  He went on to take a Masters degree in Early Modern History before converting to law at the College of Law, London, where he received a Distinction.

He was called to the Bar in 2006 at which time he undertook a common law pupillage in Leeds and was exposed to a wide variety of work. He was a tenant at a well-known Leeds Chambers until 2011 when he joined Exchange Chambers.

In November 2012 Alfred was appointed to the Attorney General’s Regional Panel. He is instructed by the Treasury Solicitor and various central government departments and agencies with great frequency.

Drawing on his common law background, Alfred practises in a number of complementary areas of law. He particularly enjoys cases where there is an overlap between his practice areas and is very well-placed to give advice on such matters. He is fast gaining a solid reputation for his sharp intellect and commercially-focused, client friendly approach.

Alfred’s practice is developing with a wide range of work with particular strengths in complex inquestsemployment and discrimination law, commercial and insolvency, professional negligence, public law, personal injury and clinical negligence.
