Joseph Bunting

Call 2019


Joseph joined Maitland in September 2020, after successfully completing pupillage under the supervision of Richard Fowler, Fiona Dewar, Watson Pringle, and Caley Wright. During pupillage, he gained wide-ranging experience across Chambers’ specialisms. He is now developing a broad commercial chancery practice, and has acted in commercial and possession disputes, as well as advising on land transactions and probate.

Later this year, he will return to Magdalen College, Oxford (where he read law as undergraduate) to teach the Law of Torts.

Joseph welcomes instructions in all of Chambers’ areas of practice, including landlord & tenant; real estate; trusts & settlements; and wills, estates & family provision; as well as commercial, partnership, and insolvency disputes.
