Practice Overview

Ben has a broad-based commercial Chancery practice, with a particular emphasis on property and pensions work, and related professional negligence, although he also has wide experience in all of Chambers’ other core areas, including insolvency, company, contractual disputes, trusts, wills and probate and other private client matters, civil fraud and general commercial disputes.

He enjoys acting on his own account, or as a junior as part of a large team.

Ben joined Chambers in 2009 following the completion of his pupillage.

Having acted in the high-profile IBM pensions litigation, the recent legal directories describe Ben as a recognised junior building a solid reputation in the area, who is as likely to appear in cases as sole counsel as he is to appear led by a silk. “He is a very bright guy who is very hard-working and very easy to deal with.” “He is exceedingly user-friendly and charming to work with.” Chambers & Partners, 2016

The Legal 500, 2015 describe him as “an excellent, hardworking and personable pensions junior.

Ben is recommended in Chambers & Partners 2015 in the pension field, which states that he is “A strong and confident advocate who is well regarded by peers and clients” and describes him as “Bright, commercial, easy to work with and responsive”.

He was also recommended in the 2014 and 2013 editions, where it was said that he is “recognised for his diligence and client-focused approach” and had “impressed solicitors with his ‘tremendous work ethic and mastery of the facts”.
