Prior to coming to the commercial Bar, Oli qualified from Cambridge as a medical doctor and worked as a junior doctor for a number of years. He is also an accomplished writer, having authored and published a successful guide for aspiring medical students on the profession.
Oli gained a Training Contract with a Magic Circle law firm before making the switch to the Bar.
Oli joined 20 Essex Street as a tenant in the summer of 2013 after completing pupillage with them. He is involved with cases concerning arbitration, litigation, private international law, shipping, commodities and insurance and reinsurance.
