Position

Michael specialises in planning and public law. His practice encompasses environmental, regulatory, local government, European and administrative law. Michael practiced as an employed barrister at a prestigious international law firm for 5 years, and has also spent a 9 month secondment in house, so has experienced the pressures and level of service required by professional and lay clients. In 2017, Michael was a finalist for Young Employed Barrister of the Year.

Michael has a broad practice, and examples of his recent work include:

  • Advising High Speed 2 on blight, compulsory purchase and planning matters;
  • Planning inquiries and hearings for significant housing schemes;
  • Sole counsel in judicial review hearings;
  • Successfully securing Disability Living Allowance for a deaf child following an appeal to the Upper Tribunal; and
  • Advising the Government of Afghanistan on cultural heritage matters.
  • Major infrastructure development, particularly the promotion of schemes, has been a cornerstone of Michael's practice, and he has acted in a number of DCOs. Michael has also acted for the Government in relation to the draft Airports National Policy Statement, and has advised High Speed 2, including on secondment.

Michael is able to receive direct access instructions, and also is authorised to conduct litigation - which means that he is able to act without a solicitor in many circumstances.
