We are delighted that Aristide Hoang-Brown joins us as a tenant after completing pupillage with us.
Aristide trained in a range of areas of law and plans to focus on housing, property, family, employment and public law.
During his pupillage, he assisted Jonathan Pennington Legh in property and housing litigation, including possession and disrepair claims and boundary disputes. Under the supervision of Barry McAlinden, Aristide was also involved in complex private and public law children proceedings concerning serious allegations of abuse.
Since starting his second six, Aristide has been instructed to advise and represent a broad cross-section of clients from victims of domestic abuse and tenants to local authorities and insurers, across all of chambers’ practice areas. He has been commended for his conduct of cases and the results he has achieved for clients.
Before pupillage, Aristide worked as a County Court advocate. He conducted more than 200 hearings, including small claims trials, possession hearings and interim applications.
He also worked as a paralegal for 18 months in a busy family law firm. This role included court advocacy in Family Law Act and Children Act proceedings and representing parents at Local Authority Public Law Outline (PLO) meetings. He was also a volunteer with Support Through Court.
He was awarded the State School Scholarship and Blackstone Entrance Exhibition by Middle Temple for the Barrister Training Course (BTC) at BPP Law School.
Aristide achieved a Distinction/Outstanding in his BTC.
