Maxwell joined Chambers in 2018 following the successful completion of his pupillage, during which he gained wide experience in all areas of Chambers’ practice. Since the commencement of his second six, Maxwell has developed a broad chancery practice, comprising property, insolvency and general commercial disputes.

Maxwell regularly appears in the High Court and County Court in his own right, as well as working with senior members of Chambers on larger cases. He accepts instructions as sole counsel in all of Chambers’ core practice areas.

During his second six, Maxwell was seconded to the London offices of Womble Bond Dickinson LLP, during which he worked on a complex, multi-million pound arbitration in respect of the financing of various commercial fishing vessels and a landmark appeal brought under the Indian Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016.

Maxwell has recently been appointed to the Attorney General’s Junior Junior Panel.

Maxwell graduated with a First in law from the University of Nottingham in 2014, before completing the BCL at Magdalen College, Oxford. He was called to the Bar by Lincoln’s Inn in 2016, and was awarded Lord Denning and Megarry Scholarships to support his professional training. Prior to pupillage, Maxwell worked as a Research Assistant at the Law Commission, working on projects to reform the law of wills and to update the Land Registration Act 2002. He also lectured on tax law at UCL.
