Charles worked as a solicitor for nearly 8 years, before being called to the bar in 2005 and joining Queen Square Chambers in 2014. This enables him to appreciate the commercial realities of litigation and the pressures faced by busy solicitors. He is based in Exeter and is regularly instructed to represent clients across England and Wales.
He appreciates that sometimes it helps to be able to talk things through, and is happy to discuss cases informally, often before receiving formal instructions.
