Christopher has a young family, so much leisure time is happily spent watching them grow up. He likes regular weight training at the gym, which sometimes conflicts with a recently discovered gift of baking.

Hailing from south Wales, he has an obligatory love of rugby, and music, spending much of his youth playing the trombone in a variety of excellent ensembles; although he does not play much anymore, he still enjoys music of all sorts, and listens to it live whenever he can.

Christopher joins Chambers as a third six pupil under the supervision of Tara Lyons, and accepts instructions across a broad spectrum of civil matters, including commercial, property, insolvency, and general chancery litigation, as well as a keen interest in personal injury.

Originally, Christopher practised as a tenant in the business and property team at Kings Chambers (Manchester, Leeds, and Birmingham), having successfully completed his pupillage there under the supervision of Mark Harper QC and Andrew Latimer. His experience there means that he is able to provide advisory, drafting, and advocacy expertise at all stages of civil litigation.

Prior to joining Pump Court, Christopher has been on a career break from the Bar to be ordained in the Church of England, and following a spell of pastoral service he took up a position lecturing in doctrine and church history, a role involving extensive research, writing, and public delivery of a range of academic material.

Legal Services

Christopher can undertake work in a range of commercial disputes, and has had experience of many of the usual issues involved in connection with such litigation, including contractual formation and interpretation, sale of goods and supply of services, banking and finance, professional negligence, in addition to aspects related to civil procedure. He has represented major companies as well as smaller traders and individuals, and has appeared at all stages of proceedings, and is able to bring a practical and commercial perspective to whatever the individual case requires.

Christopher has also dealt with many aspects of personal and corporate insolvency litigation. He has acted for creditors and companies in winding-up proceedings (both in the winding up list and in contested cases), in bankruptcy petitions, and has appeared for insolvency practitioners on a number of matters.

Christopher has experience of various forms of property claims, both commercial and residential, including boundary and easement disputes, nuisance, landlord and tenant, mortgage cases covering a number of issues, possession hearings and appeals, questions of ownership and title, and accepts instructions in all matters relating to property litigation.

Christopher accepts instructions in all matters relating to personal injury.

Christopher is keen to develop his practice into inheritance work, including contentious probate and administration actions.
