Jeremy joined chambers on the completion of his pupillage in February 2013. Following his call to the bar and prior to completing pupillage Jeremy gained experience working with several local firms of solicitors primarily in family law. This experience gives Jeremy a practical understanding of how just important the solicitor/client relationship is in relation to client/counsel. Jeremy’s pupillage was under the supervision of Gina Small who oversaw the family element (financial remedy and children) and Rawdon Crozier who oversaw his civil work.
Since joining chambers Jeremy has developed a very busy broad practice. Alongside representing Local Authorities in public law and children in both public and private law, Jeremy is sought after to represent private clients involved in complex and/or ‘highly charged’ disputes in all areas of family law. His authoritative yet supportive and understanding approach sets clients at ease and is aimed at helping them through the maze that is often encountered within the court process.
Jeremy has a particular interest in financial remedy disputes and regularly represents clients across all stages of financial remedy proceedings including applications for variation, enforcement and interim relief.
Whilst family law has been the predominant work in his practice and for what he may be best known locally, Jeremy continues to accept instruction in civil matters. He is a senior lecturer on the Bar Training Course (BTC) at the University of West England teaching civil litigation and advocacy, and is module leader for the Family Law course. In addition, Jeremy provides teaching on the LPC/SQE as required.
Jeremy has represented Local Authorities and parents in public & private law matters from the initial hearing right the way through to fact-find and final hearings to High Court and beyond. Jeremy’s age and life experience provides clients with the reassurance he is someone who understands the difficulties they face whilst his family centred client approach ensures they receive the appropriate advice no matter how unpalatable in a sensitive manner.
Following on from his successful pupillage with Gina Small, Jeremy has retained a particular interest in financial remedy disputes and regularly represents clients across all stages of financial remedy proceedings including applications for variation, enforcement and interim relief.
