Practice overview

Lee joined Cathedral Chambers as a tenant in July 2018 following successful completion of his pupillage under the supervision of Christine Abbott (first six) and Guy Moore (second six). Prior to pupillage, he built up general experience in law during his employment at Hugh James; where he worked mainly in the areas of product liability and personal injury.

Lee then took a sabbatical in 2015. This was as a result of securing a scholarship to work in a leading law firm in Malaysia where he dealt with a range of civil matters. He also worked briefly as a county court advocate.

Lee is now developing a busy and growing practice in all areas of family law. He is an approachable and friendly barrister and clients report that they are grateful for his honest advice.
