Ben was called to the bar in 2021 and joined chambers as a full member in September 2022, following the successful completion of his commercial pupillage under the supervisorship of Ian Tucker.
Ben’s practice covers four main areas; general commercial, Insolvency (both personal and corporate), banking and finance, and property. Ben is regularly instructed in each of the aforementioned sectors to provide written advisory and drafting work, and to attend court.
As well as contentious court work, Ben also has experience of alternative dispute resolution, having successfully represented clients in mediation. After Ben’s successful brokering of such a settlement, Ben’s instructing solicitor provided the following feedback to Chambers’ senior management
“He went above and beyond and I look forward to instructing him again on other matters!”
Prior to coming to the bar, Ben held two non-qualified positions. The first was in the office of general counsel of a “big four” accountancy firm and the second was in the banking and finance team of a major Northern Irish law firm. These experiences have shaped his early practice to date.
