Camilla Whitehouse

Year of Call:     2010

Camilla was called to the Bar in 2010, having graduated from Kings College, London with a Joint Honours degree.  She then obtained a distinction in her LLM in Professional Legal Practice, coming top of her cohort.

In 2014, whist practising from chambers in Inner Temple, Camilla became one of the most junior barristers in England and Wales to qualify under the public access scheme. In 2017, she set up Gainsborough Law and in 2018 she was authorised by the Bar Standards Board to conduct litigation. 

Camilla’s work, both advising and litigating, covers all areas of traditional and commercial chancery law with a particular emphasis on property, landlord and tenant, bankruptcy and insolvency, company and commercial and wills and probate.  Camilla also has a thriving employment law practice and a growing reputation as a leading expert in HMOs. 

Camilla regularly represents clients in the High Court, County Court and Tribunals. 

Camilla accepts direct access instructions and is able, where required, to conduct litigation on behalf of her clients.

Testimonials

  •  Camilla was extremely knowledgeable regarding HMO law – and all letting property procedures.   I am sure she knows a great deal in other areas of the law also.  Camilla knew the court system and process, and advised us of all courses of action.  She offered what she thought best course of action but never pressured me to choose.   She was very clear, and fair – and gave me a great deal of confidence in her ability to represent me.   She communicated quickly and efficiently – and in a friendly respectful manner.  She explained the law in a clear and effective way – she made it easy to understand what was going on, and the options I had.  I never felt like I was kept in the dark or misrepresented in any way.  She is very personable, and very professional. I would highly recommend her services to anyone needing help with an HMO or rental issue.
