Practice Overview

Chloe is an experienced junior, specialising in criminal and regulatory law.

In her criminal practice, her emphasis is on organised crime and she has prosecuted and defended in a large number of complex and high-profile cases of that nature. By prosecuting and defending in drugs and firearms conspiracies, Chloe has become accomplished in the handling of large amounts of multi-faceted evidence. She also applies those skills defending large-scale fraud and money laundering cases.

She is a Grade 4 Prosecutor and a member of both the Specialist Rape and Serious Sexual Offences (RASSO) list and the Specialist Serious Crime list of prosecutors.

Chloe is regularly instructed by the General Medical Council to present fitness to practice cases at the Medical Practitioners’ Tribunal. These cases range from clinical cases which require mastery of intricate medical expertise to sexual malpractice and dishonesty.

Chloe is a member of the Private Prosecutors’ Association. Of particular relevance to this area of work is her in-depth understanding of disclosure in criminal cases; an area for which private prosecutions often come under close scrutiny and, if which not properly managed, can be their downfall.

Having practiced in London for a decade before her move to the Northern Circuit in 2015, Chloe also maintains a practice there.

Away from her usual practice areas, Chloe has an interest in sports disciplinary work and is a legal member of the Disciplinary Panel of England Boxing and Chair of England Handball’s Competitions and Disciplinary Committee. She is also a member of the Sports’ Resolutions Pro Bono Panel as a result of which she has represented sports people in proceedings against the Lawn Tennis Association and British Horse Racing Authority.
