Mountford Chambers welcome two new Pupils


Mountford Chambers are delighted to welcome Joseph Sinclair and Rachel Pain who have commenced pupillage with us today, 3rd October 2022.

As an associate researcher at an anti-corruption charity, Joseph gained experience in bribery proceedings, asset recovery, sanctions and mutual legal assistance, with a focus on freezing orders brought in under the Criminal Finances Act 2017. Before coming to the Bar, he was a specialist caseworker at a firm of immigration solicitors working on citizenship deprivation proceedings, complex appeals and advising on points of diplomatic law. 

Prior to commencing pupillage, Rachel worked as a paralegal at GT Stewart Solicitors in their specialist criminal appeals team. She has experience in a wide variety of criminal matters. She also has experience of challenging public bodies, including a successful judicial review of the Legal Aid Agency. She also assisted with challenges to the Ministry of Justice and the Metropolitan Police Service.

Welcome to Chambers.
