Sam Chandler is a real rising star. His impressive technical knowledge combined with his excellent client friendly manner make Sam a real stand out member of the junior bar.
Sam maintains a busy Chancery practice in all areas of chambers’ work. He regularly appears in the county courts, the High Court, the Court of Protection, and the Tax Tribunals (both the FTT and the UT), both as sole advocate and as junior counsel. He has also gained substantial experience in non-contentious Chancery work, including advising and drafting around complex issues relating to trusts and estates and their taxation.
Sam has experience of high value and complex litigation, having spent much of the last two years successfully acting for HMRC in the £1 billion Ingenious litigation (led by Malcolm Gammie CBE QC), and the £300m Icebreaker litigation (led by Jonathan Davey QC). He has also gained significant experience of offshore commercial chancery work, having spent three months seconded to a Jersey firm in 2015. He is currently instructed in ongoing multimillion-pound Jersey litigation concerning alleged breaches of duty on the part of former directors of a Guernsey company in respect of a complex lending arrangement, and a breach of trust claim against the former trustees of a Jersey trust.
