Adam joined chambers as a pupil in October 2016. Prior to completing the Bar Professional Training Course Adam worked as a Business Development Paralegal in North Wales and was solely responsible for securing new clients in this region for a Claimant Personal Injury law firm.
Adam recently completed his first six under the supervision of Lianne Murphy (Joint Head of Chambers) and his second six under the supervision of Stuart Murphy and has now been welcomed as a tenant at Senate House Chambers.
During his pupillage Adam was exposed to a wide array of public children’s matters and shadowed members of chambers on several long-running fact-finding hearings. He has experienced cases involving neglect, emotional harm, non-accidental injury and sexual abuse. Adam also shadowed members of chambers representing clients on private law Children Act matters and private law Family Act matters (including non-molestation orders and occupation orders), in addition to financial remedies proceedings. Similarly, Adam spent time with the criminal team in chambers, both in the Crown Court and the Magistrates Court.
Since beginning his own practice, Adam has frequently represented parties in Public and Private Children’s Law and Family Law Act matters, both at an interim stage and within final hearings. Adam has experience representing a range of parties in such matters, including parents, local authorities, children (with or without a Children’s Guardian) and grandparents. Adam has also developed a strong practice in matrimonial finance proceedings and TOLATA cases, largely due to the pragmatic and logical approach he is able to bring to such cases.
Adam has also regularly appeared in the Magistrates court as a CPS prosecutor.
Adam now regularly accepts instructions in all main areas of law including:
• Public and Private Children’s Law
• Private Family Act matters
• Financial Remedies proceedings
• Criminal Law (Prosecution and Defence)
• Civil Law
Whilst at University Adam was part of the first team to represent Wales at the Telders International Moot Court Competition held at the International Court of Justice in the Hague.

Upon completion of his law degree Adam received the highest overall mark in the history of Bangor Law School.
Whilst studying for the Bar Adam was the Vice-President of the BPP Bar and Mooting Society in Manchester and subsequently received the highest overall mark out of all other Middle Temple students in his BPTC cohort at Manchester.
