Practice Overview

Caspar joined Chambers in 2020 upon successful completion of his pupillage. His pupil supervisors were Thomas Robinson, Tiffany Scott QC, Jonathan Hilliard QC, Benjamin Faulkner, and Jonathan Chew.

Caspar has gained a breadth of experience across Chambers’ practice areas, including commercial litigation, insolvency, pensions, probate and estates, professional liability, property, and trusts. Caspar accepts instructions in all of Chambers’ main practice areas and is equally comfortable being instructed in his own right or as part of a larger team.

Recent examples of notable work include:

  • Advising the trustee of a substantial offshore settlement in relation to attacks on the trust made in the context of a multi-jurisdictional dispute, led by Jonathan Hilliard QC.
  • (As a pupil) assisted Joanne Wicks QC and Jonathan Chew in obtaining summary judgment in a dispute concerning a £100 million property sale.
  • (As a pupil) gained experience of numerous aspects of pension law, including accrued rights, equalisation, the amendment of scheme rules, employer debt and protected persons legislation.
  • (As a pupil) assisted in the early stages of a substantial professional negligence claim, which included allegations of intentional breach of fiduciary duty and arose out of unsuccessful commercial litigation.
  • (As a pupil) assisted Jonathan Chew in obtaining Part 8 relief for executors seeking to be appointed directors of a company.
  • (As a pupil) gained experience of various aspects of property law, including landlord and tenant disputes, development disputes, contracts for sale, and mortgage enforcement.
  • (As a pupil) assisted Thomas Robinson in a successful application to put a £25 million group of investment companies into administration, followed by a successful application for a world-wide freezing injunction against its founder.

Prior to joining Chambers, Caspar obtained a PhD on the subject of primary and secondary rights in private law under the supervision of Professor Charles Mitchell at UCL. Caspar’s PhD was funded by an LAHP Doctoral Scholarship from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Caspar then obtained a BCL from the Queen’s College, Oxford, graduating with a distinction and winning the Herbert Hart Prize for Jurisprudence. He is also a Lord Mansfield Scholar of Lincoln’s Inn.
