Timothy Evans

Call: 1979

Overview

Tim’s practice centres on insolvency, chancery and commercial litigation. As a senior junior, his considerable experience enables him to assimilate complex material and identify the key issues at speed.

When working with a leader, he provides reliable and cost-efficient written work. He is also commonly instructed to work with another junior, providing experienced advice and advocacy skills.

 

Tim spent his first ten years of practice specialising in traditional Chancery fields, principally capital taxes, trusts and contentious probate, and charities. He joined what is now Maitland Chambers in the early 1990’s, and his practice now includes insolvency, minority shareholder disputes and legal professional negligence (including disciplinary work).
