Gareth graduated with a LLB in Law from The Open University, and subsequently completed the Bar Professional Training Course at BPP Law School. Gareth was called to the Bar in 2015, by The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple and is now also a member of the FLBA. Gareth joined Regency Chambers after the successful completion of his pupillage.

Before joining Regency, Gareth was a Paralegal in a busy Local Authority childcare team. This gave a firm grounding in pre-proceedings processes from a local authority perspective. In this role Gareth attended and chaired PLO meetings, shadowed at legal planning meetings and regularly assisted the progress of matters at court. He also oversaw a varied caseload of active proceedings, including Section 31, adoption and discharge of care order matters. Previous roles also included a period as a Case Manager at the Office of the Official Solicitor, within the public law children team, which gave Gareth in-depth knowledge of the steps involved in representing parents lacking capacity and an understanding of such proceedings from a parent’s position.

Gareth now specialises within family law taking instructions in both Children Act public and private law. Gareth represents all parties within care proceedings and is regularly instructed in more complex matters than would be expected for his call.
