Charles joined 7KBW on successful completion of his pupillage in September 2023.
Charles is developing a busy practice across the breadth of commercial law, including insurance, general commercial disputes, international arbitration, shipping, commodities, and civil fraud. He accepts instructions as sole counsel and as junior counsel in all 7KBW’s specialist areas.
Before commencing pupillage, Charles worked as a legal researcher for counsel acting for Ukraine in ongoing litigation before the International Court of Justice. He maintains a keen interest in Public International Law.
Charles studied Modern and Medieval Languages at the University of Cambridge, where he achieved a Double First. After graduating, he was awarded the Paul Mellon Fellowship, a fully-funded scholarship for postgraduate study at Yale University. Upon completing his MA degree (which was focused principally on Russian foreign policy), Charles was awarded funding to spend a year as a Visiting Fellow at Yale’s MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies. Having taken the opportunity to explore the legal side of his research interests at Yale, he commenced his formal legal studies at City Law School on his return to the UK.
