Chloë joined Chambers in January 2022, moving from a small set in the North East. Before embarking upon her career at the Bar, Chloë was the Operations Manager of her family’s dental practices in Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire. Before her life in dentistry, Chloë worked for MBNA Europe Bank Limited, concluding her banking career as a specialist on an international technology project.
Prior to tenancy and pupillage, Chloë worked as a County Court Advocate for a number of agencies and undertook over 300 hearings in Chambers on the Northern Circuit and beyond. Her early civil practice included small claims and fast track trials, case management conferences, interlocutory applications, property litigation matters and insolvency matters.
Chloë’s practice is now almost exclusively Criminal and Family. In the Magistrates Court, Chloë has extensive trial experience, both prosecuting and defending. She is routinely instructed to appear in traffic matters, particularly for ‘totting’ clients who face the prospect of losing their licence. She has successfully prosecuted in matters involving offences against the person, criminal damage, animal cruelty, possession of offensive weapons, motoring offences and supply and possession of drugs.
Chloë is commended by instructing solicitors for her ability to put people at ease, particularly young or exceptionally anxious clients. She is also noted for her ability to get to grips with complex matters quickly.
Chloë is based in both Manchester and the Lake District. She is a familiar face in particularly the Cumbrian and North Lancashire Courts and other Northern Magistrates and Family Courts.
