Work Department



Nick has been at St Philips since pupillage in 2005 and now practices almost exclusively within Public Law Proceedings.  He is regularly instructed by Local Authorities across the West Midlands and also frequently represents parents, children and intervenors.  In particular, Nick has experience of cases involving: inflicted injuries, poisoning, sexual abuse (including inter-sibling), the murder of one parent by another and radicalization.  He also has experience of cases involving Forced Marriage and FGM. 

Nick has joined with other members of Chambers in providing seminars and lectures to Solicitors and Social Workers throughout the region.  He has also published a number of articles in the area of Children Law (those on the retention of children after contact being short-listed for the inaugural Family Law Awards).

Nick is very committed to what he does.  He aims to provide a highly professional service and in a manner, he hopes, that is both approachable and sympathetic.
