We are delighted to announce that our two current pupils have been offered tenancy with us and have accepted. On 1 October 2022 Jamie Cockfield and Louis Grandjouan, will join us as members.
Before coming to the Bar, Jamie worked at an energy analytics consultancy founded by Oxford University professors and economists. He received an Arts, Humanities and Research Council (AHRC) doctoral scholarship for a DPhil (PhD) in History at the University of Oxford. Jamie also received an AHRC Master’s scholarship for an MSc at the University of Oxford and an undergraduate degree in Politics and Modern History (First Class) from the University of Manchester, where he was awarded the Warren Kinsey History Prize.
He was awarded a full scholarship by BPP Law School for the GDL (completed in 2020) and a Buchanan Prize by Lincoln’s Inn for his performance on the Bar Training Course (BTC), which he completed in 2021.
Louis formerly practised in the London and New York offices of a leading US law firm. He is admitted as a solicitor (England & Wales) and attorney (New York). He worked primarily on cross-border finance and restructuring transactions.
Louis graduated from the University of Oxford with a first-class degree in Law (Jurisprudence) in 2016. He was an exhibitioner (subsequently a scholar) of University College, Oxford and was awarded the Alan Urbach Memorial Prize for Jurisprudence. In the year prior to pupillage, Louis was the judicial assistant to Lord Stephens in the UK Supreme Court and Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. He worked closely on many cases raising points of law of general public importance, across a wide range of areas.
Both accept instructions across chambers’ core practice areas. Please contact our clerks (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information.
