Joshua is an experienced foreign qualified Barrister with a wide range of exposure to Commercial, Regulatory, Business Crime and Government litigation, both for and against government and large multi-national clients.

Prior to his call to the Bar of England and Wales and the Queensland Bar he was also the Lead Solicitor for the Missing Trader-Intra Community Litigation team for HMRC in London. He was also a Solicitor Advocate in a “Big Six” Australian law firm specialising particularly in the areas of Judicial Review and commercial litigation disputes, constitutional law, coronial inquiries and freedom of information litigation. Joshua was also an Associate to a Judge in the General Commonwealth jurisdiction of the Australian Court structure. He also has significant experience drafting policy guidance for Government Departments for implementation and use by departmental officers as well as statutory interpretation/construction of financial legislative instruments.

Joshua has extensive experience in Commercial Litigation. He has worked on international joint venture disputes for one of the leading mining companies in the world. This involved a protracted dispute and compromise over, amongst other things, transport of coal from the mine to the port where one company owned the mine and one company owned the transportation from the mine. He also worked on an $8M AUD (£4.6M) breach of contract case where the allegation was, amongst other things, that there were breaches of an implied term of the contract and whether the damages that were claimed were too remote.

More recently, Joshua has been instructed by Local Authorities to assist them with Child Protection work. This has involved extensive reviews of contact notes for key sensitive information. This builds on experience that Joshua has in the family law field, having also been an associate to a Judge in the Family Law jurisdiction of the Australian Court structure. He also regularly delivered seminars to family law firms in respect of evidence gathering and its presentation to Courts.

 * He was initially admitted and practised as a Solicitor (High Court of Australia and Supreme Court of Queensland) in January 2011 before being called to the Queensland Bar and undertaking the Bar Transfer Test (England and Wales) in 2015.

Joshua also accepts Direct Access instructions.
