Joseph Bunting

Call: 2019

Overview

Joseph joined Maitland in September 2020, after successfully completing pupillage. He is now developing a broad commercial chancery practice, and regularly acts in commercial, insolvency and property disputes.

His recent work includes acting in commercial and property proceedings and appeals (including before the Privy Council led by Nicholas Peacock QC), as well as well advising on probate, insolvency, real estate, and trusts disputes. He also has experience of settling disputes by ADR.

Joseph welcomes instructions in all of Chambers’ areas of practice, and is equally at home acting unled or as part of a wider counsel team. He is a member of the Attorney General’s ‘Junior’ Junior Scheme.

 

Joseph read law at Magdalen College, University of Oxford, where he took a double first. He then went straight onto the BPTC (as a Lord Denning Scholar of Lincoln’s Inn), followed immediately by pupillage, becoming a tenant at Maitland aged 23. Alongside his first year of practice, he returned as a Lecturer to Magdalen College, Oxford, to teach the Law of Torts.

Joseph’s clerks would be happy to discuss the terms on which he will act. Unless agreed otherwise in writing, he will be acting on The Standard Contractual Terms for the Supply of Legal Services By Barristers to Authorised Persons 2020 (as updated from time to time and referred to in the BSB Handbook).

Expertise

Overview

Joseph has acted and assisted in a range of commercial disputes, from proceedings in the County Court through to an appeal before the Privy Council.

Notable Cases

  • Pickle Properties Ltd v Plant (British Virgin Islands) [2021] UKPC 6 – Joseph acted (led by Nicholas Peacock QC) for the Respondent, who succeed before the Privy Council. The appeal concerned the effect of delay on the safety of a judgment, and the circumstances in which an equitable contribution from a co-guarantor will be denied.

Overview

Joseph has a keen interest in land law, and came top in his year at Oxford in the subject. He regularly acts in possession proceedings, and has experience acting in commercial disputes concerning real securities, as well as advising on commercial lease disputes.
