Fantastic barristers at all levels.

Priya joined chambers as a tenant in October 2023 after the successful completion of her pupillage under the supervision of Sam Chandler, Mathew Roper, Luke Harris and Jordan Holland.


During her pupillage, Priya assisted her supervisors with a wide range of cases, including claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, probate claims, misattribution of artworks, cases in the Court of Protection, cross-border estate disputes and professional negligence claims against solicitors. In addition, Priya gained experience advising on a range of non-contentious matters, such as the proper construction of wills and trust deeds and the tax consequences of the same.

Priya was also involved as a pupil in the following reported cases: Dalriada Trustees Limited v HMRC [2023] UKFTT 00314 (TC); Pead v Prostate Cancer UK & Ors [2023] EWHC 642 (Ch) and Hinduja v Hinduja [2022] EWCA Civ 1492.

Accordingly, Priya has gained experience in all areas of chambers’ practice and welcomes instructions in all of those areas.


Before coming to the Bar, Priya worked on the Grenfell Tower Inquiry and the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse. Thereafter, she spent a year working in the contentious trusts and estates team at a leading international private client firm.
