AREAS OF EXPERTISE:
Sam was called to the Bar in October 2020, and joined Kings Chambers as tenant in March 2021 having cross-qualified as a Solicitor Advocate.
Prior to joining Kings, Sam spent almost 9 years in the Employment team at DAC Beachcroft LLP, qualifying as a Solicitor in February 2016. There, he specialised in employment tribunal litigation, conducting hundreds of claims on behalf of major respondent clients, including undertaking advocacy at complex and high value multi-day hearings. He obtained Higher Rights of Audience (Civil) in March 2018, and joins Chambers as an experienced practitioner, having been granted a full exemption from all elements of the Bar Transfer Test and Pupillage.
Sam has a particular interest and experience dealing with discrimination and whistleblowing claims, including in a regulated environment with large public and private health sector organisations. He also brings real commercial insight to his practice, having spent a year on secondment as in-house counsel at a FTSE 100 client.
Sam also had substantial exposure to appellate litigation during his time as a Solicitor, and can draw on his experience working with a number of leading employment silks across several ground-breaking cases in the Employment Appeal Tribunal and Court of Appeal.
