Rupert read law at Emmanuel College Cambridge and went on to be an Inner Temple Exhibitioner before joining EA Law - East Anglian Chambers in 2009.
Specialising in contract and commercial disputes, employment law, insolvency and personal injury claims, Rupert routinely appears for claimants and defendants in the County Court, Employment Tribunals, insolvency proceedings in the Rolls Building and is regularly instructed to provide advice in these fields.
Rupert has represented parties as sole counsel in multi-track commercial, contentious probate and High Court Chancery cases. His commercial experience includes being instructed both to undertake advisory work and to appear on behalf of applicants and respondents in Employment Tribunal hearings and in corporate insolvency proceedings. Additionally he has advised on disputes involving conflict of laws and has conducted cases with cases in which both jurisdiction and the choice of laws have been in issue.
He has also appeared in a number of cases before the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal, the Social Security Appeals Tribunal, and the Crown Court.
Rupert has appeared as a legal pundit on BBC 1, ITV Anglia, Channel Five and Sky News. His writing on the legal system has been published in The Lawyer, The Times, The Telegraph, The Independent and The Guardian.
Before becoming a barrister Rupert debated for Inner Temple and Cambridge University in national and international competitions, and spent time at law firms in Tokyo (Linklaters) and Sydney (Allens Arthur Robinson).
Rupert grew up in East Anglia, and was a scholar at Woodbridge School.
Rupert has an excellent technical ability, understands a client's needs and is impressive in the court room. Of course in deciding to instruct him it helps that he has never lost a case with me.
