Iain completed a specialist family law pupillage under Abigail Bond and Nick Miller in September 2017, in which he experienced the full range of financial remedy and public and private law children matters. He is now developing his practice in all areas of family law and is happy to consider instructions on a pro bono basis in appropriate cases.
Iain was born and bred in the South West. Prior to commencing pupillage, he studied History at both the University of Oxford (BA, first class) and Harvard University (MA). He then worked to set up a Lottery-funded legal advice partnership in Exeter. Turning to law, Iain undertook the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) conversion course in Plymouth followed by the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) in Bristol, achieving the top marks in his cohort on both courses.
He is currently a trustee of the South West Legal Support Trust.
