Timothy joined Maitland in September 2022, after successfully completing pupillage under the supervision of Maxim Cardew, Alec McCluskey, Laurie Scher and Narinder Jhittay.
During pupillage, Timothy gained wide-ranging experience across Chambers’ specialisms. He is now developing a broad commercial chancery practice, including commercial disputes, insolvency, civil fraud, property, company law and chancery matters.
Before joining Chambers, Timothy took a first in Greats at Merton College, Oxford and stayed to read for an MPhil in Classics, which he obtained with Distinction. He then read Law with ‘Senior Status’ (i.e. as a second undergraduate degree) at Harris Manchester College, Oxford, graduating top of the Senior Status course. He subsequently completed the Bar Course with Distinction, receiving the Derek Wood QC Prize for the best overall performance at the Inns of Court College of Advocacy.
Together with Professor Robert Hazell (Constitution Unit, UCL), Timothy is co-author of Executive Power: The Prerogative Past, Present and Future (Hart Publishing), which is due for publication in autumn 2022. The book examines the prerogative powers of the Crown amid the changing landscape of the British constitution.
Timothy’s clerks are happy to discuss the terms on which he accepts instructions. In the absence of written agreement to the contrary, Timothy accepts instructions on The Standard Contractual Terms for the Supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons 2020 (as updated from time to time and referred to in the BSB Handbook).
