Sam has a busy practice in line with Chambers’ profile, and accepts instructions in all areas of UK tax and chancery/commercial law. He holds an undergraduate degree in law from St John’s College, Cambridge (where he came 6th in the University), and a BCL from the University of Oxford (Distinction; top of the year in Personal Taxation). Sam is regularly instructed in the High Court and the tax tribunals, both unled and as a specialist tax and/or property junior.
Prior to joining Chambers, Sam was a lecturer in law at Christ Church, Oxford and taught both land and tort law to undergraduates. He then undertook pupillage at a leading commercial chancery set, before completing a third six in these Chambers. Accordingly, he is particularly well-placed to advise clients who have taxation issues arising from underlying commercial, property, or insolvency matters.
