Christopher has practised in London and Sussex since his call in 1991 and specialised in family law for most of his career.
Prior to joining the Bar, he had the advantage of working as an in house lawyer for a London local authority. During that time he gained invaluable experience in the discharge of the responsibilities that a local authority has towards children and adults who live within the area.
His practice now incorporates all aspects of family law and he acts for local authorities, parents and children through their guardian. His particular expertise is in complex ancillary relief applications.
He also undertakes mental health law work and acts for local authorities in respect of their duties under the Mental Health Act 1983.
