About Chris

Prior to joining the team in London, Chris spent three years as a Legal Assistant in the Private Client team in Royds Withy King’s Swindon office, assisting with Wills, Powers of Attorney and the administration of estates. Chris graduated from Cambridge University with a BA in Law in 2015, and achieved a Distinction in his Legal Practice Course at BPP University in Bristol in 2018.

Chris commenced his training contract with the firm in September 2018 and he has now moved over to our Corporate team as a Trainee Solicitor in March 2020 as parts of his rotation to become a qualified Solicitor.


Outside of work, Chris enjoys watching football (especially his beloved Arsenal FC), cooking and playing the guitar. He is also an avid – and highly competitive – player of video games and board games.

I am very excited to be continuing my legal career with Royds Withy King, and look forward to helping the firm continue to provide a fantastic service to our clients that puts their needs first
