Call: 2022

Samuel began pupillage in October 2023 and is gaining experience in all of Chambers’ key practice areas. Samuel is currently being supervised by Gordon Menzies, who specialises in regulatory law, alongside employment and health and safety.

During his first seat Samuel was supervised by Daniel Stevenson, whose practice is focused upon prosecuting and defending the most serious criminal offences. Samuel produced several notes and advices, including on the availability of discretionary reporting restrictions and the use of live-link evidence in criminal proceedings.

Before starting pupillage Samuel worked as a risk and conflicts analyst at a “Magic Circle” law firm, providing advice on regulatory compliance and the sanctions regime. He also has experience of regulatory and employment law having worked as the senior case officer for a trade union representing licensed private hire drivers. Whilst studying for the Graduate Diploma in Law he volunteered at the Cleaners and Allied Independent Workers Union, representing workers in employment disputes, where he represented a claimant in a successful claim in the Employment Tribunal.

Before coming to the Bar, Samuel worked for philanthropists and commercial galleries in the arts sector.

Samuel will be available to accept instructions in any area of law from April 2024.
