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.
