Following the successful completion of his pupillage at 3PB, David has developed a busy common law practice on the Western Circuit.

David known for being a dedicated and detail-orientated practitioner who utilises robust advocacy skills both in the Court room and during negotiation. He prides himself on his strong client care skills and his understanding of the needs of lay and professional clients.

Prior to joining Chambers, David previously worked for almost two years as a self-employed County Court advocate/outdoor clerk for a large national solicitors firm, which provided him with a daily experience of Court advocacy. Thereafter, David joined a prominent local firm of solicitors in Cambridge as a conveyancer, where he worked for over a year before becoming admitted as a Solicitor. Shortly after being admitted to the Solicitors’ Roll, David became employed as an in-house advocate at large firm of personal injury solicitors, thereby gaining further experience of contentious litigation.

David showcased his research and editorial skills as an editor of Lexis®PSL’s corporate crime service, which provides professional-level practical guidance to corporate lawyers on the implications of criminal law and procedure.

Away from work, David enjoys socialising with friends. He has a passion for motor-racing and car mechanics, and can often be found under the engine cover of his 1978 Bertone X1/9 project car. He has also trained in cocktail mixology and “flair” bartending so he can enjoy the pleasure of a flamboyantly mixed Manhattan at the end of a busy week!

David was admitted as a Solicitor of England and Wales (2013) and ceased practising and removed from the roll upon commencement of pupillage in October 2014.
