Rory commenced pupillage in October 2022 and is gaining experience in all of Chambers’ core practice areas.
Prior to joining Chambers as a pupil, he worked as a paralegal at a leading London boutique litigation firm. Much of his work there was as part of a core team of barristers and solicitors in high value commercial disputes, often with an international element, and he has particular experience of claims connected to the CIS countries and the British Virgin Islands. He has also assisted on various matters in the County Court, especially in the areas of insolvency and personal injury.
Before being called to the Bar, Rory graduated with the top first in Theology from the University of Oxford in 2017, and stayed to read for a master’s, which he obtained with Distinction. He then completed the GDL and BPTC at City Law School as the recipient of both the Jules Thorn and the Queen Mother Scholarships from Middle Temple.
In 2020, he won the Rosamund Smith Mooting Competition, and was awarded the Ede and Ravenscroft Prize for best speaker in the final.
