Adam is currently in the second six months of a specialist criminal pupillage under the supervision of Robert Smith.
During his pupillage, he has shadowed Robert and other members of the team in the Magistrates’ Court, Youth Court and Crown Court, where he has assisted for both the prosecution and defence in cases involving violence, drugs, theft, motoring offences, sexual assault and murder. He has also had experience of various regulatory proceedings, including inquests, licensing matters and health and safety prosecutions.
Prior to coming to the Bar, Adam worked in a number of different roles in both local and national politics, where his responsibilities included working as an organiser on election campaigns, research and policy work, speech writing and media relations. He also served as an elected councillor here in Greater Manchester, where he gained experience in areas such as licensing and planning and environmental enforcement.
Whilst studying, he won the Essex Court Chambers National Mooting Competition in 2018, the final round of which was held in the Court of Appeal before former Supreme Court Justice, Lord Saville.
During his first six, Adam has also spent time with members of chambers’ personal injury team, where he has gained experience of advising on quantum and drafting particulars of claim and defences in claims relating to road traffic accidents, employer’s liability and occupier’s liability. In addition to developing his criminal practice, he is also eager to accept instructions in these areas.
