Overview

Rory joined Maitland in September 2021 following the successful completion of his pupillage under the supervision of Olivier Kalfon, Rosanna Foskett, Duncan McCombe and James Ballance. He is now developing a broad commercial chancery practice, and welcomes instructions in all areas of Chambers’ expertise.
