Ralph joined Chambers in September 2017 upon successful completion of his pupillage under Charles Holroyd, Benjamin Parker, Michael Holmes and Richard Sarll. As a pupil, he gained experience in all of Chambers’ practice areas, including international arbitration, shipping (including Admiralty Court work), insurance and reinsurance, professional negligence, sale of goods and general commercial work. In line with that experience, he is building a broad practice in all areas of commercial law.
Since joining Chambers, Ralph’s work has included multi-million-dollar international arbitrations regarding offshore engineering and the sale of iron ore, a £39m Commercial Court claim against a major auditor and appearances as sole counsel in the County Court, as well as a range of advisory and drafting work. Ralph has also spent time on secondment to the shipping department of a major City firm of solicitors.
