Joseph Sinclair and Rachel Pain accept offers of tenancy.


We are delighted to announce that Joseph Sinclair and Rachel Pain have accepted tenancy offers following the successful completion of their pupillages.

Joseph is developing a busy practice in all areas of Chambers’ work and is regularly instructed to defend in the Crown and Magistrates’ courts. He is increasingly instructed to defend allegations of serious drug, firearms, and violence offences in the youth court, which often raises issues of gang affiliation, county lines, and modern slavery.

Joseph assists as a researcher at Spotlight on Corruption.

Rachel specialises in criminal defence, representing clients across a broad range of offences in both the Magistrates’ and Crown Courts. She is also experienced in youth court cases and in representing vulnerable individuals.

Rachel is a committee member of the Criminal Appeals Lawyers Association.

We congratulate Joseph and Rachel and wish them continued success in their careers.
